The true story of Oscar Grant, a 22-year old Bay Area resident who wakes up on the morning of December 31, 2008,and feels something in the air. Not sure what it is, he takes it as a sign to get a head start on his resolutions. His resolve takes a tragic turn, however, when BART officers shoot him in cold blood at the Fruitvale subway stop on New Year’s Day. Oscar’s life and tragic death would shake the Bay Area - and the entire nation - to its very core. Discussion to follow. Light refreshments provided. Doors open at 5:30pm. Presented by the Black Student Union, USUAB and the Cross-Cultural Center.
