Fourteen years after the anti-terrorism movement began, the Sonja Haynes Stone Center for Black Culture and History is showing a documentary with a different side of the story: "(T)ERROR."
“(T)ERROR” brings to light how terrorism has been sensationalized to form public policy. The documentary follows the perspective of a black revolutionary turned informant and reveals the government’s counterterrorism tactics.
“(T)ERROR,” which is being shown tonight at 7 p.m. in the Hitchcock Multipurpose Room of the Sonja Haynes Stone Center on campus, is part of the Diaspora Festival of Black and Independent Film screening that runs all semester. The film is free for the public and will be followed up with a discussion with the film’s co-director, Lyric R. Cabral.
“The overall goal is to expose the campus and the community at large to new and exciting filmmakers and to films that are showcasing issues and people of the diaspora,” says Clarissa Goodlett, program and communications manager at the Stone Center. “We really try to push the festival out to folks to make it accessible to anyone interested."
The festival has been running every fall semester for more than 20 years and screens an average of 25 films throughout the semester on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. There is also the “Lunch and a Movie” series, where the Stone Center provides lunch along with a film screening.
