UMD Presents Film
"Journey to a Hate Free Millennium"
October 5
7 p.m.


The University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) will present the film "Journey to a Hate Free Millennium", October 5 at 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in Bohannon Hall, room 90 on the UMD campus. Admission is free, and the public is cordially invited.

The stirring and powerful film centers around true stories from the national headlines including: the unfathomable student shootings at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colorado; the torturous dragging death of James Byrd, Jr., an African American man in Jasper, Texas; and the brutal beating death of Matthew Shepherd, a gay college student in Laramie, Wyoming.

The inspiring documentary candidly examines the nature and consequences of hatred in contemporary society, raising the question of how hate is taught and learned, the scope of its danger reaching from childhood taunting to murder.

Viewers are invited to take a stand against HATE and create their own vision of a world free of HATE, where senseless acts of violence are a thing of the past.

The event is sponsored by the UMD Diversity Commission with UMD GLBT Services.
