Film Screening: Fruitvale Station (2013)

Black History Month Film Festival

Winner of both the Grand Jury Prize for dramatic feature and the Audience Award of U.S. dramatic film at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, Fruitvale Station follows the true story of Oscar Grant, a 22-year-old Bay Area resident who crosses paths with friends, enemies, family, and strangers on the last day of 2008; a day that takes a tragic turn, however, when BART officers shoot him at the Fruitvale subway stop on New Year's Day.
