New Jersey City University presents the New Jersey premiere of Hate Crimes in the Heartland, a new documentary exploring hate crimes in the United States. This compelling film presents a vivid portrait of race relations in America today and explores the inspiring efforts toward hope and reconciliation. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring historian Dr. Clement Price, author Karen Hunter, Director of the Lee Hagan Africana Studies Center at NJCU Dr. Antoinette Ellis-Williams, activist Hasan Salaam, director and producer Rachel Lyon and exonerated member of the Central Park Five Kharey Wise.

Following the panel discussion, the audience is invited for a light reception where it is hoped that participants will engage in continued conversation. The event is part of NJCU's Black History Month programs and is free to the public.  For more information, visit www.hatecrimesheartland.com or reserve a seat at www.hchnewjerseyscreening.eventbrite.com.
