A Reckoning in Boston Film Screening and Discussion

Please join the University community for a FREE & open to the public screening of A Reckoning in Boston followed by a Q&A with the film’s main subjects and producers Carl Chandler and Kafi Dixon, facilitated by Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs Jim Vigoreaux. The film takes place in the Livak Ballroom in the Davis Center on Wednesday at 4:30pm.


In a tuition-free night course in their Boston neighborhood, Kafi Dixon and Carl Chandler are transformed by the lessons of history and philosophy. But is their new sense of agency strong enough to deflect the inequities of a rapidly gentrifying city? In a prosperous and progressive city, why is the divide between white and Black, rich and poor, so glaringly wide? The Boston Globe calls it “…an absolute must see.”

This event is part of the University of Vermont’s Faculty Development Series, “Equity, Social Justice and Sustainability Imperative” and Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration. For more information, please visit go.uvm.edu/mlk22
