Sixteen Thousand Dollars is a narrative comedy short film that imagines a world in which a struggling black college grad wakes up to find that reparations have finally been paid to descendants of slaves in America. With this new found capital, they will decide how best to spend their reparations, totaling a mere $16,000. Receiving reparations opens up old wounds of slavery, Jim Crow, and systematic oppression.
On Sunday June 21st, we welcome you to attend a screening and discussion on reparations and Q&A in conjunction with the DSA Afrosocialists & Socialists of Color Caucus and the DSA Fund. The film will be screened during this event.
