Watch the movie The Hate U Give (PG-13), based on the bestselling and award-winning novel by Angie Thomas. We'll have snacks and coloring pages to enjoy during the screening.
Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives, and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right.
No registration required. This screening is open to grades 6-12, but this movie may not be appropriate for every tween or teen. Read this review on Common Sense Media for more information on the movie's content and themes.
