Voting Film Event
The Santa Barbara African Heritage Film Series (SBAHFS), with other community organizations,
invites you to join us for a special film engagement at the Arlington Center (Theatre) on
Thursday, October 13, 2016 at 6:30pm.
"Selma: The Bridge to the Ballot" and "Fannie Lou Hamer: Courage and Faith" are two important
documentaries depicting how others used their gifts to ensure voting rights and opportunities for us
today. With the elections just around the corner, this is an opportune time to remember that our
votes can bring about changes that unify us as individuals within a diverse community.
An audience discussion will follow the films and allow a time for sharing.
The SBAHFS is a grass roots community organization with emphasis on democracy while bridging
the gap of injustice and inequality with knowledge and empowerment. This is accomplished by
providing a platform for dialogue among diverse cultures utilizing films and discussions.
With the support of The Metropolitan Theatre Group, David Corwin and our friend, Judi Weisbart,
we invite your organization to join us for this special film engagement.
We ask for your support by distributing this invitation throughout all in Santa Barbara via your email
lists and sharing this invitation with them.
Tickets can be purchased at the Arlington Center box office.
Adults - $10 donation
Students - $ 5 donation
Teens - Free
Children with Adult(s) - Free
Both films depict how children participated in the civil rights movement leading to the Voting Rights
Act of 1965. Please help us offset the cost of allowing children and teens to attend this event with
free admission so they can learn new facts about this little-known American history.
The Santa Barbara African Heritage Film Series is a tax-exempt organization and entirely
supported by volunteers and donations. We hope you will support our efforts.
