About the Event

North Jersey Pride presents a special screening of "From Selma to Stonewall," an exploration of the similarities, differences, and conflicts between the black civil rights and gays rights movements.

Following the documentary, WNYC's Nancy Solomon will host a Q&A with the film's co-executive producer and co-star, Rev. Gilbert Caldwell; Rev. Kevin Taylor, Senior Pastor of Unity Fellowship Church NewArk; Rev. Jerri Mitchell-Lee, co-pastor of the Unity Fellowship Church NewArk, educator and mental health counselor; and Elaine Helms, founder of Reaching Adolescents in Need, (RAIN) Foundation, which houses homeless LGBTQ youth.
