The ANSWER Coalition will present a feature documentary showing of “Citizen Clark… A Life of Principle,” the story of former U.S. Attorney General and human rights activist Ramsey Clark. The benefit screening will be held on Saturday, May 6 at 2:00 p.m. at Howard University, 2400 6th Street NW, Digital Auditorium, Blackburm Center, Washington, D.C. The film, narrated by Martin Sheen, is a chronological look at Clark’s national and international commitment to the causes of justice, peace and human rights issues. Clark’s work in the Justice Department with John and Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Civil Rights, LBJ, the turbulent 1960s, the Vietnam War, his run for the 1974 U.S. Senate race in New York and U.S. interventions throughout the world will be shown. Individuals like Noam Chomsky, Ralph Nader, Mark Green, UN General Assembly President Miguel d’Escoto Brockman and other journalists, politicians and human rights advocates are featured in the film.
ANSWER Coalition’s Brian Becker will give opening remarks and introduce special guest Ralph Nader. Emmy award-winning filmmaker Joseph C. Stillman will be on hand to discuss his twelve-year relationship with Clark and the challenges of making a large, comprehensive international project. A $15 suggested donation is requested.
