Last night's showing of 𝘎𝘶𝘦𝘴𝘴 𝘞𝘩𝘰'𝘴 𝘊𝘰𝘮𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘛𝘰 𝘋𝘪𝘯𝘯𝘦𝘳 was truly impactful. The film, sponsored by Huron Valley MLK Day at the Milford Independent Cinema, was released in 1967, and more than 50 years later, was given a well-deserved round of applause last night.

The post-film discussion, expertly led by our guest speaker, Harry Weaver III, the Chief Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer of Oakland County, Michigan Government, delved into the film's powerful message and broader discussions about race. It was heartening to see our community come together to openly share thoughts and insights, creating a safe space for important conversations.

We're incredibly grateful for the opportunity to provide a platform for these discussions and hope to continue fostering a community where such dialogues happen regularly.

Last night's discussion also highlighted the urgency of these conversations, as the subject matter remains remarkably relevant today. The film "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner" served as a poignant reminder of the challenges surrounding racial issues, resonating with contemporary societal concerns. Engaging in open discussions about civil rights, race, and equality is crucial, especially given the persistent struggles for justice and inclusivity. Martin Luther King Jr.'s teachings, while deeply rooted in the historical fight for civil rights, offer timeless wisdom that extends far beyond a designated MLK Day.

Last night's event emphasized that celebrating Dr. King's legacy should not be confined to a single day but should permeate our everyday lives. His commitment to nonviolent activism, equality, and justice calls on us to actively participate in ongoing conversations that address systemic issues and promote positive change.

Thanks to everyone who joined us; your presence made the evening richer, and your contributions to the conversation are invaluable. Let's keep these discussions alive and meaningful in our community!
