RECEPTION: 6:30 PM | FILM: 7:30 PM

Directed by Jesse Nesser/104 min.

Michigan has an unsung hero who has made an enormous difference in how Americans live. That person is Damon Jerome Keith, an African-American judge, who — against all odds — handed down some of the most important decisions affecting our civil rights in jobs, housing, education and law enforcement. He went from a Detroit-born janitor to a preeminent judge in the time that the country evolved from segregation to electing an African-American president. Now 94, Keith is currently a senior judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit (Cincinnati). Come see this amazing portrait of a great man who quietly fought injustice for so many.

Scheduled to attend: Director Jesse Nesser, Judge Keith (health permitting) and Producer Sally Davis.
