Join us on June 24th for the screening of the acclaimed PBS documentary Two American Families – book now at http://DAUK-film-june2016.eventbrite.co.uk.
In this riveting documentary, the legendary Bill Moyers chronicles the lives of two blue-collar families, one black and one white, over a 20-year period, as they struggle to pursue the American dream in the face of job losses in the declining industrial city of Milwaukee. Their poignant stories give a human face to the effects of inequality, globalization, and radical changes to the job market. Professor Peter Kingstone and Dr. Antonine Rogers will lead a discussion after the film. Tickets are going fast, so don’t delay!
