The campus community is invited to a film screening of “The Silent Cries of Unborn Ghetto Children” directed and co-produced by Dr. Kevin Harrison, assistant teaching professor and director of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and Riccardo Harris, executive director of Wichita GEAR UP, from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 31 in the CAC Theater.

“The Silent Cries of Unborn Ghetto Children,” explores trauma, tragedy, racial segregation, and healing centered around a tragic plane crash that occurred on Jan. 16, 1965, just blocks from the campus. In fact, as the plane was losing altitude and jettisoning fuel, some spilled on the campus. Less than four hours later, with jet fuel still on the arena roof, Shocker fans packed onto campus to witness the Shockers defeating St. Louis to claim its first ever Missouri Valley championship. The film was funded through a grant from Humanities Kansas.

The screening event is co-sponsored by the Cohen Honors College, Fairmount College, the School of Digital Arts and Shocker Studios.
