Join the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) as they bring their Conscious Minds film series to Troy’s Boys and Girls Club (1700 7th Ave, Troy) for a presentation of Elementary Genocide part 1. The screening happens on April 2nd. starting at 2pm.


Elementary Genocide is a documentary executive produced by award winning journalist/filmmaker Rahiem Shabazz. The documentary appeals to a wide general viewership by addressing the social, cultural, political and personal ramifications of how the federal government allots money to each state, to build prions based on the failure rate of 4th and 5th graders. In America, where half of the 4th grade is reading below grade level and more African-American males are in jail than are in college, Elementary Genocide serves as a striking reminder of a flawed system in need of repair.

Doors will open at 2pm and program will start at 3pm. A question and answer period, along with an open dialog session will conclude the presentation. Part 2 of Elementary Genocide will be shown on April 30th.
