Film Screening: Dope Is Death

  • This event has passed.

Join us for a screening of the documentary Dope is Death and stay for a brief dialogue following the film.

Dope Is Death is the story of how Dr. Mutulu Shakur, stepfather of Tupac Shakur, along with fellow Black Panthers and the Young Lords, combined community health with radical politics to create the first acupuncture detoxification program in America in 1973 – a visionary project eventually deemed too dangerous to exist.

Dialogue panel includes Jamal Skinner the Founder/Director of Cultural Enrichment Center, and Yaz Juneau of Health District of Larimer County.

The event is presented by Fort Collins Museum of Discovery in collaboration with ACT Film Festival, SummitStone, Unite Us, and Northpoint Colorado.

This is a free event – registration is required.
