Celebrate Pride by viewing a powerful new documentary about the New Jersey 4, the young black lesbians who were criminalized for defending themselves against a violent homophobic attack in New York City in 2006. The women were charged with “gang assault” and attempted murder. Portrayed in the media and by the prosecution as a “lesbian wolf pack”, “killer lesbians”, and gang members, all four were convicted and served prison time.
This award-winning, one hour film follows what happened that night, the media smear campaign, the women’s legal cases, and national defense efforts. It shows how justice was denied due to homophobia, race, gender, and class bias. The inhumanity of the prison system is wrenchingly revealed. An open discussion will follow the film.
