"The Hate U Give" Film and Discussion

The Hate U Give movie poster
Based on Angie Thomas' soul-stirring novel in which a young woman witnesses a life-and-death event, "The Hate U Give" pushes us to come to grips with both the terrifying reality of hatred, the power of community and the courage to overcome that hatred. Making connections between Tupac's "THUG LIFE" and the Black Lives Matter movement, "The Hate U Give" challenges us all to speak up for justice in a world desperately in need of peace

About the film:

Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what's right. The Hate U Give is based on the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller by Angie Thomas.
