Freedom 55: Remembering Emmett Till with award-winning filmmaker, Keith Beauchamp (21 Feb in Cincinnati, OH)

Join us for a reception and discussion featuring Keith Beauchamp, Producer of the upcoming film, Till

Award-winning filmmaker Keith A. Beauchamp attended Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiane where he studied criminal justice with the intention of becoming a civil rights attorney. As a young boy in Baton Rouge, Beauchamp had his share of run-ins with racism but it wasn’t until an incident where he was assaulted by an undercover police officer after dancing with a white classmate at a party that he felt compelled to fight racism and move to New York. It was here he could pursue a dream in becoming filmmaker. And through this feat, he’d attempt to remedy some of the past and present injustices that plague communities abroad.
