About this Event
On March 29, Filmmakers Jane Gillooly and Khary Saeed Jones will present their film, Where the Pavement Ends, a 2018 feature documentary that draws parallels between a 1960s dispute over a physical barricade erected between the Missouri towns Kinloch and Ferguson, and the 2014 shooting death by police of Michael Brown.
Both filmmakers will be in person and a student-moderated discussion will follow the screening.
Synopsis: Where The Pavement Ends transports viewers to Missouri towns Kinloch and Ferguson, examining the shared histories and deep racial divides affecting both. Through archival audio recordings, photographs and the recollections of residents from what was then all-Black Kinloch and the all-white community of Ferguson, director Gillooly, a Ferguson native, draws parallels between a 1960s dispute over a physical barricade erected between the towns and the 2014 shooting death by police of Michael Brown which brought her town national attention.
Cosponsored by: The Weissman Center, Department of Critical Race Political Economy, Department of Gender Studies, Critical Social Thought, and Culture, Health and Science
