Join us for a wine-and-cheese reception, followed by a screening of the documentary 3½ MINUTES and a brief panel discussion.

(Having trouble viewing the trailer?)

At a Florida gas station in 2012, a white middle-aged male and a black teenager argued over the volume of music in the boy's friend's car. A gun entered the exchange, and one of them was left dead—all within 3½ minutes.
Through eyewitness testimony and in-depth reporting, this film tells the true story of 17-year-old Jordan Davis—another tragic victim of prejudice in America—revealing the devastating effects of racial bias, gun violence, and the controversial “stand your ground” law.
