The Clayton State University AmeriCorps Program is hosting its next Service Cinema Screening on Thursday, Apr. 26, at 6 p.m., in room 272 of the James M. Baker University Center. AmeriCorps will be screening Invisible Children’s newest short documentaries: “KONY 2012” and “KONY 2012 BEYOND FAMOUS.”
Since 1987, Joseph Kony has been accused of abducting more than 30,000 children in Central Africa, and of forcing them to be child soldiers in his Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). Americorps invites the public to come watch the documentaries “KONY 2012” and “KONY 2012 Part II: BEYOND FAMOUS” to learn more about Kony, the LRA, and to hear firsthand experiences from a Ugandan speaker. There will be a question and answer session following the screening.
Invisible Children’s mission is to end the use of child soldiers in the rebel war going on in northern Uganda and throughout Central Africa, and to restore the region to peace and prosperity through the use of film, creativity and social action.
This event is free and open to the public.
