“A Breath for George” — Augsburg Women Engaged (AWE) Host Virtual Screening

February 25 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm CST


Register here for zoom event.

Join AWE, a council of alumnae, and valued Augsburg campus and community partners, for a virtual viewing of “A Breath for George” by Austene Van. This groundbreaking film honors the life and death of George Floyd as well as explores the larger issues of police brutality, systemic racism, and anti-Black racism. The film uplifts the voices of Minnesotan artists, scholars, and community members who have been historically and negatively impacted by these injustices, through a collection of interviews, music, and poetry.

Immediately following the viewing, there will be a 30-minute discussion with the following esteemed guests:

  • Austene Van, the filmmaker and Artistic Director of New Dawn Theatre
  • Joanne K. Reeck, M.A., Augsburg Vice President for Equity and Inclusion
  • Dr.  Terrance Kwame-Ross, Augsburg Associate Professor & Chair of Education
  • Dr.  Michael Lansing, Augsburg Associate Professor & Chair of History
