[IN-PERSON] This Is [Not] Who We Are - Screening/Talkback

Date: June 16, 2022Time: 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Boulder, Colorado, prides itself on being beautiful, welcoming, and inclusive. However, in 2019, racially-charged and dangerous policing involving a Black university student made national news. The documentary film, This Is [Not] Who We Are, explores the gap between Boulder’s self-image and the more complex lived
experiences—both historical and contemporary—of its Black citizens.

This is [Not] Who We Are braids the lived experiences of Black characters ranging in age from 12 to 78. Some stories are searing, while others are hopeful. The film seeks to open a space for dialogue among Boulderites and about cities like Boulder, overwhelmingly white, wealthy, and conflicted about issues of diversity, inclusion, and equity. Is a more economically and racially diverse future possible, both in Boulder and in cities like it across America?

Immediately following the screening we will be joined by Katrina Miller, one of the award-winning Directors of This Is [Not] Who We Are.  Katrina will discuss themes from the movie and answer questions from the audience and moderator, Jasmine Sampson. Jasmine is the Founder of Curate Boulder, a cultural arts center dedicated to empowering, celebrating, and showcasing African American artists while creating a more diverse Boulder Valley and building community.

This program is presented in partnership with, Con·nect, a series of free bi-monthly gatherings designed to amplify BIPOC artists and to strengthen relationships and partnerships among BIPOC artists and arts organizations in Boulder County.
