New Brunswick, NJ, December 07, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- One’s People’s Project will be showing the documentary “Alt-Right: Age of Rage” at Emanuel Lutheran Church in New Brunswick, New Jersey, on Saturday, December 15th. The event will run from 6pm to 10pm and will feature a post-film discussion with activist and One People’s Project founder Daryle Lamont-Jenkins. The event is sponsored by the Socialist Party of Central Jersey, New Jersey Revolution Radio, The Green Party of New Jersey and others.
“Alt-Right: Age of Rage” focuses on the ascendance of the alt-right movement in the aftermath of the election of Donald Trump and concludes with the events that took place in Charlottesville, Virginia in August of 2017. The film, according to IndieWire.com, addresses head-on the question, “does talking about neo-Nazis help expose the flimsy hatred that fuels their ideologies, or does giving oxygen to toxic firebrands like Richard Spencer and Milo Yiannopoulos only make them stronger?”
Daryle Lamont-Jenkins also features prominently in the film as a leader vocal and active in the movement against white nationalist and racist groups. “Hate speech is protected under the First Amendment,” says Jenkins in the film, “but if what you say does cause some sort of harm people are going to have to respond.”
The screening of the film is timely given recent hate crimes such as the massacre at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. Additionally, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center, there are at least six active white nationalist or racist skinhead organizations in New Jersey alone.
According to Film Threat, “No person of conscience can watch (the film) without wanting to stand and howl in rage.”
The event is s fund raiser for the One People’s Project, admission is free, the suggested donation is $25.
One People's Project has been on the front lines reporting on and exposing the racist right, working hand in hand with countless coalitions to shut down ultra-nationalist conferences, and rehabilitating ex-white-supremacists for 17 years.
Emanuel Lutheran Church is located at 1 Kirkpatrick St, New Brunswick, NJ 08901.
