Change Comes Knocking screening at National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis!

Change Comes Knocking will be screening in Memphis, TN as part of Indie Memphis Freedom Series.  We will be screening at 6pm on September 9th, 2010 at the National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis. The Museum is built around the Lorraine Motel, the very place where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was murdered.  Since he was working so vigorously on poverty issues at the time of his death, I am confident that this screening will be one to remember.  If you are out in Memphis on the 9th.  Please come and join us for this amazing event.

Here is a link to the poster and schedule of the entire film series.
