Following the three-year battle that would turn a couple of unassuming moms into the most unlikely of advocates. Hazel Park residents Jayne Rowse and April DeBoer were looking to overturn the law that prevented them from adopting their children. But on the recommendation of a federal judge, their lawyers launched a frontal assault on the legal barrier that prevented them from jointly adopting — Michigan’s constitutional amendment that prohibits same-sex couples from marrying. The case was the catalyst for the Supreme Court legalization of same-sex marriage in June 2015.

On March 8, 1971, eight ordinary citizens broke into an FBI office in Media, PA. They took 100s of secret files, and shared them with the public. They uncovered the FBI’s spying and intimidation of Americans exercising their First Amendment rights. I wanted to let you all know that Detroit-based civil rights lawyer Bill Goodman will be introducing the film 1971 at our 7 p.m. screening on Friday, March 27. Bill has more than 40 years of experience in constitutional and civil rights law and international human rights, including representing Wayne County Jail inmates over inhuman conditions, prisoners in the Michigan Department of Corrections for long term lockdown, the ACLU in action against the FBI for assaults on Freedom Riders in the 1960s, the NAACP in cases against the insurance industry for red lining. More recently, he has concentrated almost exclusively on matters of police and law enforcement misconduct, including serving as Special Council to the Detroit City Council in its investigation of former mayor Kwame Kilpatrick's settlement of certain cases for private gain as opposed to public benefit...proceedings which ultimately led to the removal of the mayor from office. In addition, Goodman teaches a seminar on constitutional theory at Wayne State University School of Law. In short, I can't imagine anyone better suited to provide legal perspective and context for 1971. Don't miss what is sure to be a fascinating talk on Friday, March 27 at 7 p.m.

There's never been a theatrical documentary about the mid '60s-early '70s women's movement -- until now -- and Wednesday 3/18 and Thursday 3/19 are your last chances to see it.She's Beautiful When She's Angry is a fascinating new documentary that resurrects the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant, women who founded the modern women's movement from 1966 to 1971. She's Beautiful captures the spirit of the time, while simultaneously addressing controversies over race, sexual preference and leadership that arose in the women's movement. It's thrilling, scandalous, and often hilarious.

"An acclaimed documentary feature exploring the extraordinary journey of the Reuther brothers - Walter, Roy, and Victor - prolific labor statesman whose social justice movement, under the banner of the United Auto Workers union, transformed the landscape of a nation. Directed by Victor's grandson, Sasha, and narrated by Martin Sheen, the film is an in-depth study of one family's rise from auto plant organizers in 1930s Detroit to leaders in collective bargaining, Civil Rights activism, and international labor solidarity. Behind the dramatic headlines of picket line conflict, assassination attempts, heated Senate hearings, and inter-union power struggles, lies a stirring personal story of determination, sacrifice, triumph, and tragedy. This influential and often controversial 40-year crusade would contribute to lifting millions of workers to a middle-class living and compel American democracy to live up to its promise of equality." http://BrothersOnTheLine.com TRAILER: http://BrothersOnTheLine.com/trailer
