Join Us: Virtual Discussion 'Briars in the Cotton Patch'
Please join us as we discuss the next film in our Striving for Justice Series on Sunday, March 28 from 6:30-8 p.m. on Zoom.
This month, we will be talking about the film 'Briars in the Cotton Patch.'
"Briars in the Cotton Patch tells the nearly forgotten story of Koinonia Farm, a small Christian community in Southwest Georgia where whites and blacks chose to live and work together as equals despite the brutal and frightening consequences.
Possibly the most daring social experiment in the South during the last century, Koinonia faced years of terror, boycotts and intimidation in the years leading up to the tumultuous Civil Rights era.
Narrated by former Atlanta Mayor and Civil Rights veteran Andrew Young, this award winning documentary examines the remarkable events that tested the moral boundaries of a community and planted the seeds for the global work of Habitat for Humanity, The Fuller Center for Housing and Jubilee Partners."
All are welcome! Just watch the film sometime before March 28. You can do so for FREE right here.
