Watch ‘The Hate U Give’ March 19 in the Commons


Join the Centre for Engaged Inclusion as they present the film “The Hate U Give” 5:30-8 p.m. Tuesday, March 19, in the Gannon Commons. The film is based on the book by Angie Thomas and is the 2018-2019 #OneBookOneLCC selection.
 
The movie follows the story of Starr Carter, who constantly switches between two worlds – the poor, mostly black neighborhood where she lives and the wealthy, mostly white prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is broken when she witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend at the hands of a police officer. Facing pressure from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and decide to stand up for what’s right.

Pageant Play – the story:  Welcome to the hilarious, terrifying and surreal world of child beauty pageants. Pinky Corningfield will do anything to make sure her little angel wins the ultimate title, Supreme Queen. When Marge, a newcomer to the pageant circuit, shows up and starts grabbing all the glory, Pinky and her minions, Bob and Bobby, use some unorthodox methods in order to ensure her darling, Chevrolet, is victorious. Glitz. Glamour. Kidnapping. Money. Really, really small false teeth.

This performance is at the Black Box Theatre at 8 p.m., Dec. 14-15.
