    Film Screening: A Dangerous Idea | Eugenics, Genetics and the American Dream

    4:30pm, Thomas S. Gates, Jr. Community Center Co-creators and executive producers Mary Morgan and Andrew Kimbrell screen their documentary examining eugenics, genetics and the American dream. This powerful film traces the myth that genes predetermine the worth of an individual and examines how this myth has provided a rationale for state sanctioned crimes committed against America’s most vulnerable citizens, and now gains new traction under the Trump administration.  A talkback to follow the screening.
