''Since I Been Down' screening

On Friday, October 2 from 9 a.m.-9 p.m., the Anisfield-Wolf Book Awards and the Cleveland International Film Festival will host a free, online exclusive screening of “Since I Been Down” directed by Gilda Sheppard.

“Spotlighting Kimonti Carter, “Since I Been Down” follows a group of prisoners as they break free from their fate and create a model of education that is transforming their lives, their communities, prisons, and our own humanity.

“This film is the dramatic story of how gangs, fear, and power arrested the development of one American community– and how in their rush to discard the poorest, and targeting brown and black youth for a false sense of safety, security and prosperity, an entire generation disappeared.

Watch the trailer of the documentary here.
