North Brooklyn DSA is screening the 1954 film Salt of the Earth, the only film ever blacklisted in America. Salt of the Earth tells the story of Mexican workers at a zinc mine who go on strike for racial and economic justice. The film is a depiction of worker and community solidarity and a challenge to sexism women confront at home and on the picket line.

The film will be shown from 6:45 to 8:15 pm. We'll have beer by donation and optional time to discuss the film from 8:15 to 9:00 pm. Everyone's welcome!
