Please Join us for this Exciting and Innovative Civil Rights Film and Q&A Discussion with the Filmmaker Dr. Chad Lawson Cooper

In “Justice on Trial,” two civil rights attorneys sue the U.S. Department of Justice for reparations and damages done to African Americans, while bringing back time-traveler witnesses, including Harriet Tubman, Medgar Evers, and Emmett Till, to testify. The evidence is then given to a mixed-cultural jury to deliberate.

The film will be followed by a discussion and Q & A with filmmaker Dr. Chad Lawson Cooper, his father retired Connecticut Supreme Court Justice Lubbie Harper, Jr., and Connecticut Super Attorney John Gesmonde. The discussion will be moderated by Caroline Clarke, Esq. The film stars Dorien Wilson, Todd Bridges, Alicia Robinson Cooper, Chad Lawson Cooper and David Arquilla.
