Linda Tropp to lead post-film discussion on "Two Towns of Jasper" at Forbes Library

Film showing: October 10 Wed. 6:30 – 8:30 pm Forbes Library

Two filmmakers, one black and one white, who grew up together in one town, co—directed a film about a horrific murder of a black man in their home town. The fundamental difference in their reactions led them to conclude that making a film about the crime would provide an illuminating window on how race is lived in America.
