Description: In observance of Black History Month, please join filmmaker
Clennon L. King for a free public screening of his critically-acclaimed documentary "Fair Game: Surviving A 1960 Georgia Lynching".  In May 1960, a Black New Jersey Navy vet sat on Georgia's death for a crime he did not commit. Last year in 2019, the State of Georgia reopened the 60-year-old Blakely, Georgia case. Come see the film and meet the filmmaker whose work prompted prosecutors to change their minds.
