Work Group for Racial Equity Discussion Group
Discussion of the Move "Till"
Facilitated by Patti Cox and Joe Hovey
Tuesday, April 18th
8:30 - 9:45 PM
The Eastern Group Psychotherapy Society Work Group for Racial Equity invites you to join us on Tuesday, April 18 from 8:30-9:45pm for a discussion of the important and emotionally evocative film, “Till,” directed by Chinonye Chukwu. The Discussion will be faciliatate by EGPS Past President, Patti Cox, PhD and current Tresaurer, Joe Hovey, LCSW.
It wasn’t until March of 2022 that lynching was made a federal crime, with the passing of the Emmett Till Antilynching Act. The story of this law can’t be told without the story of Emmett Till and his mother, whose unwavering activism is chronicled in the movie, Till. As described by the studio: “Till is a profoundly emotional and cinematic film about the true story of Mamie Till-Mobley’s relentless pursuit of justice for her 14 year old son, Emmett Till, who, in 1955, was lynched while visiting his cousins in Mississippi. In Mamie’s poignant journey of grief turned to action, we see the universal power of a mother’s ability to change the world.” Join the EGPS Work for Racial Equity as we discuss and explore our thoughts, feelings, and responses.
