“The Cost of Darkness” Documentary at the Davis Branch Library

(Woodland, CA) – All are invited to a free screening and discussion of a few sections of the documentary “The Cost of Darkness” on Thursday, January 9 from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. in the Blanchard Room of the Mary L. Stephens Davis Branch Library, located at 315 E. 14th Street in Davis.

This powerful documentary explores the continuing challenges of inequity, oppression, and injustice that dark-skinned people face in their daily lives. Produced by Sandy Holman and the Culture C.O.-O.P., this eight section documentary is a youth-driven collaboration of over fifty UC Davis students and international equity leaders that will help provide an understanding of the discriminatory practices that occur and how the public can intervene to create better systems that benefit all.

“If we are serious about changing and addressing inequities, injustice, inequality and supremacy ideology, we must examine issues through a historical, systems, and holistic lens to change our interventions accordingly,” said Producer and Culture C.O.-O.P. Director Sandy Holman. “Otherwise we will continue to spin in the status quo.”

No reservation is required and the program is free to attend. This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Davis Public Library. The Mary L. Stephens Davis Branch Library is accessible for persons with disabilities.  For more information regarding this event, contact Scott Love at (530) 757-5595 or scott.love@yolocounty.org. For more information about the documentary, contact Sandy Holman at (530) 902-4534.
