“The Honest Struggle” Screening and Discussion Presented by Pitt Jazz
Thursday, February 4 and Friday, February 5 from 7:00 to 8:15 pm
Pitt Jazz presents a two-day event on life after incarceration. On Thursday, February 4, enjoy a screening of “The Honest Struggle: Living as a Target.” On Friday, February 5, take part in a live panel discussion on the role of institutional racism in the prison industrial complex and the challenges of re-entry after incarceration. The film tells the story of Sadiq Davis, a Muslim convert who re-enters society in the Southside of Chicago after over 25 years of incarceration to face the same streets that ruined his life. The film is a raw portrait of a man struggling to survive an honest life and redefine himself in a world in which he feels no belonging. One time registration grants access to both evenings.
