FLY BY LIGHT Free Screening

  • The Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial 1850 West Basin Drive Southwest Washington, DC, 20242 United States (map)

In partnership with the Memorial Foundation (builders of the MLK Memorial in D.C.) - One Common Unity is hosting a screening of the award-winning documentary film Fly By Light (directed by Ellie Walton and produced by HAWAH). The screening will be held at the monument of one of our nation's greatest civil rights leaders. FLY BY LIGHT is a testament to the work that Dr. King undertook, the work that still demands much of all of us, and the work that Dr. King would have urged us to complete.

FLY BY LIGHT has received acclaim at 13 international film festivals, including Bahamas International, Capital City Film Festival, Urban Media Maker’s Film Festival, and winning the Audience Choice Award at BolderLife!

A performance by One Common Unity's youth performance troupe will proceed the screening, and a Q&A with those featured in the film as well as the executive director and co-founder of One Common Unity, Hawah Kasat, and the film's director, Ellie Walton.
