  • "The Hate U Give" - A Backbone Meaningful Movies Screening

    • Thursday, October 10, 2019 at 06:30 PM
    • Vashon High School Theater
    Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what's right. 

    The film is based on a best selling book of the same title, by Angie Thomas.  The title comes from Rapper Tupac Shakur who had a tattoo with the words "THUG LIFE".  He explained that the words were actually an acronym standing for  'The Hate U Give Little Infants Fucks Everyone'.

    The message was actually a warning: if we continue to bring up children in a negative environment, surrounded by racism, violence and oppression then the cycle will just continue.

    Tupac explained, "When I say 'thug' I mean, not criminal or someone that will beat you over the head, I mean the underdog. I mean someone who goes out there and succeeds who has overcame all obstacles."

    The author furthered, "When these unarmed black people lose their lives, the hate they've been given screws us all. We see it in the form of anger and we see it in the form of riots. So when I saw that in the video, it was like a sign."

    This will be a powerful evening, with poetry and discussion complementing the film.  Co-sponsored by Vashon SURJ.
