More About Price of Liberty Film Series: Mann v. Ford Screening & Discussion

For the ninth year in a row the Montclair History Center will be hosting The Price of Liberty, a film and discussion series on issues related to race, segregation, integration, and Civil Rights. This year’s 2024 series explores environmental justice sought for communities of people of color in the films Mann v. Ford (2011) produced by HBO and The Sacrifice Zone (2020) produced by Talking Eyes.
Thirty years after Ford Motor Company began dumping toxic waste in their backyard--and after one too many premature deaths--the Ramapo Mountain Indians filed a major class-action lawsuit: Mann v. Ford. This compelling documentary reveals the story of how this tiny tribe and their team of passionate lawyers took on the 'big dogs'--Ford and the Environmental Protection Agency.

Screenings and discussion will be led by scholars Leslie Wilson, PhD and Khemani Gibson, PhD.

Mann v Ford will be screened on Thursday, February 22 at 7 pm at Montclair Film’s Cinema 505 at 505 Bloomfield Ave, Montclair. Screenings will be available as a hybrid event for online participation through zoom and free to the public, registration required here: Click for Details

The Price of Liberty series is made possible by a grant from the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
