... for joining us October 28, 2021 for the encore presentation of Justice Eileen Moore's "Race Results" program. Her use of Hollywood film clips and U.S. Supreme Court cases over the decades to examine the treatment of African Americans by Hollywood and the High Court was enlightening and informative!
