Please note that this program was originally scheduled to begin at 6:30 pm and has been changed to start at 7:00 pm. 

The unflinching 1968 documentary No Vietnamese Ever Called Me N****r (1968, 86 min, David L. Weiss) follows 400,000 protesters as they march from Harlem to the United Nations building to decry the United States' continued involvement in the Vietnam War. An electrifying portrait of the righteous anger of black anti-war protesters and veterans, director David L. Weiss captures the ways in which black liberation and the anti-Vietnam movement were inextricably linked. Screening will be followed by a talkback with commentators and activists.
