Expand your horizons with the downtown Klamath County Library’s Summer Documentary & Discussion Series! We’ll be screening a wide variety of thought-provoking films on the fourth Tuesday of June, July, and August at 5:30 pm, and viewers are invited to stay after the film for discussion. Here’s an overview of what’s on deck:
Tuesday, August 23rd at 5:30 pm: Attica. Survivors, observers and experts vividly recount the 1971 uprising at the Attica Correctional Facility in New York. The violent, five-day standoff between the mostly-Black and Latino inmates and white law enforcement gripped the nation then, and lessons from the Attica riots are still very relevant to prison reformers today. Rated TV-MA; runtime 1 hour, 56 minutes.
