    Slought and the SP2 Social Justice and Arts Integration Initiative at the University of Pennsylvania are pleased to announce a special screening of Concerning Violence: Nine Scenes from the Anti-Imperialist Self-Defense (2014), a film directed by Göran Hugo Olsson. It will be followed by a conversation with scholar and activist Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak. This event is free and open to the public, however registration is requested. Please plan to arrive early as registering does not guarantee you a seat. Seating is first come, first served.

    Concerning Violence is a bold and fresh visual narrative from Africa based on archive material from Swedish documentaries 1966-1987 covering the most daring moments in the struggle for liberation from colonial rule. This powerful footage is combined with text from Frantz Fanon's landmark book The Wretched of the Earth - written in 1960 and still a major tool for understanding and illuminating the neocolonialism happening today, as well as the unrest and the reactions against it. The film is narrated by Ms. Lauryn Hill, with a preface by Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak.
