Fruitvale Station

In the early hours of New Year’s Day, 2009, 22-year-old Oscar Grant (Michael B. Jordan) was killed by police while restrained in an Oakland subway. In his feature debut, director Ryan Coogler (Creed, Black Panther) draws out the human dimension behind the headlines, telling the true story of Grant’s last day on earth and a shooting that rattled the nation.

Stay for a post-screening discussion with On Justice Fellow Usame Tunagur. Presented with Cabrini University's Wolfington Center, the On Justice series explores the intersection of cinema and social justice.
