Storming Caesar’s Palace with The GRO Fund
From the venue:
On Saturday, September 23, The GRO Fund is collaborating with filmmaker Hazel Gurland-Pooler and Red Owl Partners to host a half-day event of film, storytelling, and conversation uplifting Black women and their lineage of radical leadership. The event is co-sponsored by the Tender Foundation, Black Feminist Futures, Georgia Dusk, the Center for Civic Innovation Atlanta, Represent Georgia, and WRFG, and will take place at 7 Stages Theatre from 1-6 p.m. on Sept. 23. Register HERE to reserve your spot for this free event.
We are screening the PBS documentary film Storming Caesars Palace to share the stories of noted Las Vegas organizer Ruby Duncan and the other “welfare mothers, determined that we fare well” (poet, Aurielle Marie). Along with screening the film, we will hear from community leaders highlighting stories of Atlanta-based Black Women who fought at the intersection of poverty, race, and gender.
