Join us for a Film Fridays screening of "Wilhemina's War," followed by Q&A with Columbia Journalism School Professor June Cross.

Wilhemina's War is the story of Wilhemina Dixon, an uneducated daughter of sharecroppers who becomes a force in her family’s fight for survival from HIV and AIDS. Shot over the course of five years, the film bears witness to the resilience and determination of the human spirit in the face of tremendous adversity.

This event is free and open to the public. Pizza will be served. RSVP not required.
