Meet the Women’s Caucus as we get together to watch the new Toni Morrisson documentary, The Pieces I Am, featuring Toni Morrison, Angela Davis, Fran Lebowtiz, Oprah Winfrey, Walter Mosley, Russell Banks, and Robert Gottlieb. This film portrait received rave reviews at the Sundance Film Festival – you won’t want to miss it!
We’ve reserved twenty tickets so DA members can sit together as a group. Please purchase your ticket online ahead of time at https://www.filmhaus.at/film/tonimorrison-the-pieces-i-am/ and send me an email to let me know so I can add you to the list. Or, you can buy your ticket at the door by November 18 – tell them you’re with DA as they’ll also be keeping a list. The screening will most likely sell out so we can’t guarantee tickets will be available on the day of the screening.
We’ll meet up at 7pm at Amerlinghaus for drinks beforehand. Let me know by the 18th if you’ll be coming so I can reserve a table!
