Streaming now on our website for the next month – FREE OF CHARGE – is the 2015 film Cincinnati Goddamn (April Martin, Paul Hill), which in painful detail chronicles that city’s struggle with police brutality and white oppression, particularly during the tragic period of 1995-2001, when 15 young black men were killed at the hands of police. The film traces the systemic racism and systematic injustice suffered by the victims and families of those killed and the resulting community uprising which, with instructive prescience, forecasts our current moment, showing that institutional racism and violence are cyclical, and that we haven’t progressed as far as some think we have. Thanks to Paul Hill for the film.

Reviews

Cincinnati Goddamn suggests that the fractured bones of America can only heal if communities are willing to fight to change the systems that control them.
