The 2017 Eighth of August Red Carpet Jubilee Documentary & Dialogue event is TUESDAY, AUGUST 8 with a VIP Reception beginning at 4pm followed by general admission at 6pm and film at 7pm at the Historic Tennessee Theatre in Downtown Knoxville.
The Special Feature Documentary, “The Uncomfortable Truth,” is an unapologetic film that lays bare what we all need to understand about each other with an open and honest dialogue on race and society. The special guest for the evening and the film’s producer, Loki Mulholland, will provide a brief panel discussion following the movie. Mulholland, the son of famous Civil Rights Activist, Joan Trumpauer Mulholland, grapples with his family’s deep roots in racism as he unearths his family’s history and the truth behind their slave-owning past. Together with Luvaghn Brown, a Freedom Rider, Loki explores, through his very personal history, the United States’ institutions of racism that continue to haunt our country today.
