Last Tuesdays: Unapologetic

Hosted by JAYU

After two Black Chicagoans are killed, millennial organizers challenge an administration complicit in state violence against its residents. Told through the lens of Janaé and Bella, two fierce abolitionist leaders, Unapologetic is a deep look into the Movement for Black Lives, from the police murder of Rekia Boyd to the election of Mayor Lori Lightfoot.

Content warning: Mentions of police brutality, anti-Black racism and gun violence.

This month's Last Tuesdays screening will be followed by a live Q&A with stars Janaé Bonsu and Bella Bahhs.

Accessibility

All films at Last Tuesdays will be screened with open captions. We will provide ASL interpretation for all events at Last Tuesdays, including films, performances, workshops, and talks. Each Last Tuesdays event will have an Online Held Space containing mental health resources and active listeners.

We believe strongly that the arts provide the strongest platform to share human rights stories. The arts can be used to educate, to build empathy, to heal, to forge community and to inspire the kinds of conversations necessary to reimagine a more just and equitable world. Guided by our dedicated team of staff, artists, educators and our Board of Directors, our year-round programming includes our annual Human Rights Film Festival, our iAM arts and social justice training program, The Hum Podcast and our Human Rights Screening Series.
