Viewing of “At the River I Stand

Posted by on February 20, 2004

Jobs with Justice and the Student Labor Action Project will host a viewing of “At The River I Stand” in honor of Black History Month. “At the River I Stand” is a documentary about the last two months of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s life and his support of the Memphis AFSCME Sanitation Workers’ Strike. This powerful and award winning documentary will show viewers why it is urgent to reconnect the struggles for civil rights and workers’ rights. The documentary will be followed by commentary by Henry Nicholas, President of AFSCME District 1199c, the National Union of Hospital and Healthcare Employees. President Nicholas is a life long freedom fighter who has organized with heroes such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Cesar Chavez. This promises to be a night to remember. The documentary will be shown at the historic 1199c union hall at 1319 Locust St. February 25 from 6 pm-9 pm. Contact Jobs with Justice to RSVP or to endorse this event at 215-735-3615
