We Demand

We Demand, a short film directed by Kevin Everson and Claudrena Harold, is screening at MIT’s List Visual Arts Center until October 29th as part of its Civil Disobedience exhibit. The daily screenings are 12:30.

We Demand tells the story of the anti-Vietnam War Movement from the perspective of James R. Roebuck, a northern-born African American graduate student who studied history at  the University of Virginia during the late 1960s\ early 1970s. Over a week-long period of student upheaval following the Kent State murders, Roebuck, the first African American president of UVA’s Student Council, confronted a series of political challenges as the University appeared on the verge of imploding from within.
