Student Life Sustainability is partnering with the Detroit Shakur Squad and Bridge Community Cafe in Ypsilanti to host a film screening on November 28 at 6:30pm. Drinks and treats will be available on site!

The 78 minute film is titled Dope is Death (2020) and was directed by Mia Donovan. The film’s website provides the following description for the film: “The story of how Dr. Mutulu Shakur, stepfather of Tupac Shakur, along with fellow Black Panthers and the Young Lords, combined community health with radical politics to create the first acupuncture detoxification program in America in 1973 - a visionary project eventually deemed too dangerous to exist”. Special guests might follow the screening to speak more about the film.

Dr. Mutulu Shakur, a lifelong activist and former member of the Black Liberation Army, now 72 years-old, has been unjustly imprisoned since 1986. He suffers from life-threatening bone marrow cancer and has finally been granted parole on November 10, 2022, after years of unjust denials.

Should you be interested in joining us for the event, please take a few seconds to fill out the RSVP form, as Bridge Community Cafe has limited capacity: https://forms.gle/mTeUvsYAwtBoU3Rr6
