John Jay College of Criminal Justice: 524 West 59th Street in room 9.64 (9th Floor)
Presented by the John Jay College Center on Race, Crime and Justice Film Series
Featuring the award winning documentary by Tami Gold and Kelly Anderson
In the late 1990s, three victims of police brutality made headlines around the country: Amadou Diallo, the young West African man whose killing sparked intense public protest; Anthony Baez, killed in an illegal choke-hold; and Gary (Gidone) Busch, a Hasidic Jew shot and killed outside his Brooklyn home. Every Mother's Son profiles three New York mothers who unexpectedly find themselves united to seek justice and transform their grief into an opportunity for profound social change.
The film will be followed by a discussion with Director Tami Gold and Iris Baez, one of the mothers profiled in the film. All are welcome!
