SU Hosts Screening of 'Another Brother' February 15

Clarence FitchSALISBURY, MD---Clarence Fitch’s story is fraught with hardship. An African American Vietnam War veteran, he faced racism, poverty, substance abuse issues and HIV/AIDS.
    
Instead of dwelling on his situation, however, he transformed his experiences into a life of political activism.

His daughter tells his story, via photographs, archival footage and an interview recorded prior to his death in 1990, in the award-winning documentary Another Brother. Salisbury University screens the film as part of its annual African American History Month celebration 7 p.m. Thursday, February 15, in the Wicomico Room of the Guerrieri Student Union.

A discussion led by Drs. April Logan and Aston Gonzalez, SU African American History Month Committee co-chairs, follows. Those attending are invited to share poetry or other reflections of the Vietnam War

Produced and directed by filmmaker Tami Gold, the 1998 documentary received honors including the CINE Golden Eagle Award and New or International Film Festival’s World Gold Medal.

The Boston Globe called it “a fine-grained evocation of one humble, extraordinary life,” adding, “American history of the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s comes searing alive.” The Associated Press hailed the film as “poignant without being melodramatic.”

Sponsored by the Multicultural Student Services Office; Fulton Public Humanities Program; English Department; and Social Justice, Equity and Teaching Transformation at SU Faculty Learning Community, admission is free and the public is invited.
