In celebration of Black History Month The Oakland Green Party presents Denzel Washington staring in “The Great Debaters” — a two-hour film based on the true story of the debate team at Willey College Texas that took on the Harvard College elite in 1935. This screening will be the Oakland Green’s second in a series on the “Last Sundays” of every month
Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., dinner will be served at 7 p.m., and the movie will start promptly at 7:30 p.m. The movie will provide a forum for discussions of debate value in a democracy and of how many stories are not told about triumph under backdrops of racial violence. The discussion is meant to be a community building event held in a relaxed fun space and organized by Green Party members to discuss solutions to local issues that hurt us and many others.
