"Far East, Deep South" Registration - Presented by Jesus & Justice Collective

 May 21, 2023 |  2:00 - 4:45 pm
Location: 47385 Warm Springs Blvd, Fremont, CA 94539 | hosted by South Bay Community Church

Join us for a special screening of the documentary Far East, Deep South, followed by a discussion and Q&A session with its producer, Baldwin Chiu.

This poignant film follows the journey of a Chinese American family as they travel through the Mississippi Delta to uncover their roots. Along the way, they discover surprising stories of the racially complex history of Chinese immigrants and African American race relations in the segregated South.

By delving into these stories, we can better understand the barriers that still exist in our society and learn how to break them down through historical understanding and storytelling.

This is a must-see event for anyone interested in history, race, and culture. Don't miss your chance to learn more about this important and often overlooked part of American history.

Snacks will be provided. We'd love for you to join us! Please sign up below and, share with a friend.

Stay engaged and listen to understand. Our purpose for our events is to understand the presenter’s point of view. If you don’t agree with the perspective, please process that quietly and respectfully. We have limited time for attendees to speak, and reserve the right to cut participants off so that others have a chance to speak.

Be comfortable with being uncomfortable -  If you don’t feel you can process quietly and respectfully, do not disrupt the event or you will be asked to leave.  Instead, reach out to us through email at Jesusandjusticecollective@gmail.com and we can discuss in another forum.  

Expect and accept non-closure - each of our events has a specific focus to talk about a problem that may affect one racial group or another more than others, and that focus may leave some people in the moment feeling angry. This is normal. What we can't have, though, is to have those feelings of anger take over the mission of healing and justice.

Speech that is hurtful to marginalized peoples will be called out. If the speaker persists in voicing their opinions hurtfully we will ask them to leave.

Our mission is to promote racial conciliation while glorifying God's design of diversity.  If you are opposed to that mission, this event is not the place to express that opposition.  If you disrupt the event we will ask you to leave.

Any additional information you'd like to share?  or questions?
Thank you, and see you soon!
