Part of the “Dismantling White Supremacy” Film Series, “Cooked: Survival by Zip Code”, tells the story of the 1995 deadly heat wave in Chicago, the lack of government preparedness and the disproportionate toll the heat wave took in zip codes primarily inhabited by people of color We hope to have a panel discussion afterward via zoom that will include the filmmaker Judith Hefland, author Eric Klinenberg who wrote Heat Wave, the book that inspired the movie, Tina Cherry or someone from the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute, and Nia Evans representing the Mass Redistribution Fund. We think the film is excruciatingly relevant in light of how the covid-19 pandemic is playing out. Co-sponsored by Peace & Social Justice Committee and Friends for Racial Justice Committee. Hosted by First Church in Jamaica Plain Unitarian Universalist this Saturday from 7:00pm-9:00pm.
