Film and Discussion: The Watsons go to Birmingham


A family from Flint, Michigan experiences a life changing event during the summer of 1963. When the Watson family–ten-year-old Kenny, Momma, Dad, little sister Joetta, and brother Byron–sets out on a trip south to visit Grandma in Birmingham, Alabama, they don’t realize that they’re heading toward one of the darkest moments in America’s history. The Watsons’ journey reminds us that even in the hardest times, laughter and family can help us get through anything. There will be a short discussion following the show.
