The screening will take place at the Hayti Heritage Center at 7:00 p.m. and will be followed by a panel of representatives from organizations including the NAACP and Democracy N.C.
The film is part of a documentary series called “America Divided,” which examines the types of inequality present in different states in the country. “Democracy for Sale” focuses specifically on the deepening political divide in North Carolina and depicts the effects of money and gerrymandering on the state government.
“It’s really important to highlight for people the types of specific issues that we have with our political process that prevent people from having confidence in their government and political system,” said Jennifer Frye, panelist and associate director of Democracy N.C.
She said gerrymandering has a significant impact on which candidates voters can elect.
