Screening, Discussion on The Camden 28

Screening, Discussion on The Camden 28 Beginning at Noon on Friday, Sept. 19, there will be a screening and discussion of the documentary The Camden 28. It will feature Eugene Dixon, who was one of the anti-war activists who participated in and was arrested for the 1971 Camden draft office raid that is the subject of the film.

The event will take place at the Learning Theatre in Camden County College’s William G. Rohrer Center, Route 70 and Springdale Road, Cherry Hill.

The Camden 28 explores the events and rights issues that led up to what Supreme Court Justice William Brennan called “one of the great trials of the 20th Century.” The film won both the Jury Prize for Best Documentary and the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the 2007 Philadelphia Film Festival. It also was nominated for the 2007 Writer’s Guild of America Documentary Screenplay Award. More information about The Camden 28 is available at www.camden28.org.

This event will conclude CCC’s week-long observance of Constitution Day, a federal holiday that marks the anniversary of the historic document’s adoption in 1787. The holiday was created in 2004 and initially known as Citizenship Day.

Other events in CCC’s observance included a Constitution-themed game show, a panel discussion on academic freedom and screenings of the films Good Night and Good Luck and The Front. In addition, voter-registration materials were available on all three of the college’s campus locations throughout the week.
