Oakland Screening of Detroit 48202: Conversations Along a Postal Route


June 20, 2019 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Red Bay Coffee House
3098 East 10th Street
California 94601.

The Meiklejohn Civil Liberties Insitute and MATATU will be co-hosting a joint screening of the film “Detroit 48202: Conversations Along a Postal Route”. MCLI board members Walter Riley and Vicki Sawicki will be joining filmmaker Pamela Sporn and mail carrier Wendell Watkins to speak after the screening.

The film explores the rise, demise and contested resurgence of America’s “motor city” through a multi-generational choir of voices who reside in mail carrier Wendell Watkins’ postal route. The role of racism is woven throughout the film, exposing the wall built in the 40’s on the northwest side of Detroit. The wall once divided whites and blacks. A must-see movie for those interested in understanding the history of our country tainted by racism.
