WE THEREFORE URGE YOU TO STILL COME OUT AND JOIN US!
ImageNation and Harlem Liberation School presents a screening of Steffie Van Rhee's documentary "A Life Before This."
Ramarley Graham, an unarmed black teenager, was shot and killed in his Bronx home by a white New York City police officer four years ago. Since then, his mother, Constance Malcolm, has fought to have the officer held accountable. Her struggle for justice has led her to a life of activism and an increasingly significant role as a public figure. After the film, we will have a discussion with director Steffie Van Rhee and Constance Malcolm.

What is Harlem Liberation School?
The United States' public and private school systems do not adequately prepare Black people to be leaders and problem-solvers for ourselves. If we want to learn the information and skills we need to be empowered, WE must provide it. Harlem Liberation School was created to meet this important need.
We are a Black community learning center providing political education, grassroots organizing/activism workshops, and creating a space for open and informed political discussion in our neighborhoods.
