Conversations at MOCA: Strange Victory
First released in 1948 and described as a cry for equality and justice, “Strange Victory” is the first significant anti-racist U.S. documentary film highlighting historical and modern race-based inequities and injustices. A panel discussion will follow the film, featuring Dr. Julio Capó, Jr., associate professor in the Department of History and deputy director of the Wolfsonian Public Humanities Lab (WPHL) at Florida International University; and Dr. Rebecca Friedman, associate professor of History and founding director of WPHL. Panelists will lead a discussion on the ways anti-Blackness undergirds the nation’s institutions and how this theme is echoed within the film.
The event is free and will be held at the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA) on February 16 at 7:00 p.m.
