About this Event

For Black History Month 2021, South Florida People of Color and Epyllion Studios are proud to present the documentary film When Liberty Burns and engage our community in a facilitated virtual dialogue about racism, policing, people and policy.

When Liberty Burns tells the story of Arthur Lee McDuffie, a Black man who was chased and fatally beaten by police in 1979. The uprisings that broke out in 1980 following the acquittal of the officers involved are known as the “McDuffie Riots”. This timely reflection on Miami history offers new perspectives that urge us to press on for racial justice.

Registered participants for this South Florida People of Color event will be granted access to view the film up to 2 days prior to the Unity360 Community Dialogue. The facilitated, interactive virtual dialogue will ask, “Where were you when Liberty burned?” In this workshop we will dig into how this important and still-relevant Miami story has affected us personally and as a community.

How to participate in this event:

  1. Register here.
  2. View the film any time starting Friday, February 5th. The screening link will be provided on the EventBrite Online Event Page and reminder emails. The film is 2 hours long so allow time to watch it before the dialogue starts.
