Gumbo Coalition Film Screening with Janet Murguía | Free State Festival

June 26, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Dole Institute will host the opening night film of the Free State Festival on Monday, June 26 at 7 p.m. with a screening of “Gumbo Coalition.” This documentary follows two visionary Civil Rights leaders, Marc Morial and Janet Murguía, as they work to empower African American and Latino American communities through three turbulent years in America. Directed by two-time Academy Award-winning filmmaker Barbara Kopple, the film takes us on a journey into their lives, homes and the family histories that motivate their mission to achieve a more just and equitable community. After the film, David Tamez of Lawrence Talks will conduct an interview with UnidosUS President Janet Murguía, followed by an audience question & answer session.
