A screening of the award-winning documentary “Hate Crimes in the Heartland” is at 4 p.m. March 6 in Ross McCollum Hall’s (Nebraska College of Law) Hamann Auditorium
The screening and the discussion that will follow are designed to help students better understand why hate crimes happen. An RSVP for the event is available online.
The film examines a 1920 race riot and recent triple murder, both in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The incidents, which occurred 90 years apart, have left many in the community baffled and confused about hate crimes.
The event is sponsored by the Nebraska College of Law with support from Allies and Advocates for LGBT Equality, Multi-Cultural Legal Society/Black Law Students Association, Student Bar Association and Women’s Law Caucus. Admission is free.
