About this event

ArtsEd4All (Arts Education for Awareness and Life-long Learning) is an informal collective of educators, artists, scientists, civic institutions and community organizations, who enjoy working together to create meaningful arts experiences for all to enjoy. This year, we're teaming up with #CivicSeason (from Juneteenth to July 4th) to connect with the past, take action in the present, and shape the future.

On Sunday, June 12, we'll be opening access to the free screening of an HBO original, "A Choice of Weapons: Inspired by Gordon Parks," directed by John Maggio. Dive into the enduring legacy of photographer, writer, composer, activist and filmmaker, Gordon Parks, and his visionary work and impacts on the next generation of artists. Through the lens of three contemporary photographers, audiences witness the power of images in advancing racial, economic, and social equality. Devin Allen whose photograph “Baltimore Uprising” of the Freddie Gray protests was featured on the cover of Time Magazine; LaToya Ruby Frazier who for five years followed the Flint, Michigan water crisis and most recently photographed Breonna Taylor’s family for Vanity Fair; and Jamel Shabazz whose photographs on the streets of New York form a visual history of the hip hop era while simultaneously presenting affirming images for his community.

RSVP to receive a link and password enabling FREE unlimited access to the film via the virtual screening room from Monday, June 12, 2022 at 12:01 AM PST to Tuesday, July 4, 2022, 11:59 PM PST.

This event is free and open to the public. Please feel free to forward this to friends and colleagues!

A Choice of Weapons: Inspired by Gordon Parks is a co-production of Kunhardt Films and HBO Film for this screening provided by Kunhardt Film Foundation.
