'Against All the Odds'

Saturday, 04 March, 2017

Saint Louis University’s Society of African American Studies will host a screening and discussion of "Against All the Odds", an award winning documentary by Sandra Pfeifer, from 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 4, at Il Monastero, 3050 Olive.  

Painstakingly researched over a six-year period, “Against All the Odds,” uses candid interviews, striking imagery, and rarely seen archival footage taken after the 1917 East St. Louis Race Riot.

For more information on the screening, contact the  SLU African American Studies office at 314-977-2242.
