Steps to Liberty: Being Black in the US and France

Tuesday May 21 2024 • 1:16pm - 1:16pm ET

Journalist and filmmaker Rokhaya Diallo in The Greene Space

On October 27, The Greene Space hosted a special screening of “Les Marches de la Liberté” (Steps to Liberty), an award-winning documentary about the fight against racism in France and the United States.

After the screening, we convened a panel for a discussion on the film, as well as a broader conversation on race, policing, the Black Lives Matter movement and more. WNYC reporter Arun Venugopal hosted the discussion with the filmmaker, Rokhaya Diallo, educator Dr. Crystal Fleming, writer Mychal Denzel Smith and activist Brittany Ferrell.
