Moonlight Screening

Group photo of 4 smiling individualsThe BA Psychology Concentration, AULA Library, and the MA in Clinical Psychology Trauma Specialization joined together to present a screening of “Moonlight” followed by a Q & A with Better Brothers Los Angeles,  a nonprofit organization that educates, inspires, and connects the Black LGBTQ community in Southern California. Other panelists included Patrice Bone, BA psychology instructor and Erica Holmes, Director of the MA in Clinical Psychology Trauma Specialization.

“As Co-Director of our BA Psychology Man speaking into microphone before audienceConcentration and an occasional filmmaker myself, I’m always on the lookout for emerging films that speak to Antioch’s core values of social justice, inclusion and diversity,” said event organizer Charley Lang. “ Our past screenings have included “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” Chaz Bono’s “Becoming Chaz” and the Oscar winning “12 Years a Slave.” When I caught an early screening of “Moonlight,” I knew we had to present this film at AULA.”

Audience photoSeveral professors integrated the ‘Moonlight’ screening into their course curriculum which produced a standing room only crowd of more than 120 students, faculty, staff and members of the public. In addition to refreshments being served, the audience served up insightful and provocative questions in response to the film, which led to a stellar Q&A with the distinguished panel.
