Out of Omaha

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
MLK Parlors

The film, “Out of Omaha”, is a 90-minute documentary that provides an intimate portrait of twin brothers Darcell and Darrell Trotter, two young black men coming of age in the racially and economically-divided Midwestern town of Omaha, Nebraska. Director Clay Tweel (Gleason) met the Trotters when they were seventeen and filmed them over a period of eight years.  In the film you will see how decisions made by the brothers as well as how decisions that were imposed upon them by “the system” impacted their lives.  Following the film, there will be a panel discussion on key elements of the documentary, focusing in on social justice.
