On Thursday May 7 we hosted our first Anarcha-Feminist gathering! This event will now take place every Thursday evening from 6pm-10pm at BR.
During that time Black Rose will be open exclusively to women & trans identifying people. The activity on the night will depend on what attendees wish, but we aim to hold a range of activities including discussions, workshops and craft activities.
At 7pm on Monday May 11 we’ll be screening Dear White People (2014)
Dear White People is a fucking funny satire of what its like to be a person of colour in an ultra white institution like university.
At 7pm on Tuesday May 12 we’ll be hosting a discussion on The Freedom Rides, and how nothing has changed.
Indigenous activist and Usyd SRC president Kyol Blakeney will be giving a presentation on the 50th anniversary of 1965 Freedom Rides and the ongoing structural oppression of aboriginal people.
On Wednesday May 13 we’ll be screening: Over the Edge (1979 punk film)
Over the Edge was inspired by actual events that took place in Foster City, California in the early 1970s. Those events were chronicled in a November 11, 1973, article the San Francisco Examiner entitled “Mousepacks: Kids on a Crime Spree”.
Depicting suburban life in the late 1970s and including themes of teenage rebellion and drug and alcohol use by junior high school students, and a rock music soundtrack featuring such bands as Cheap Trick, the Cars, and the Ramones, Over the Edge has achieved cult film status.
Popcorn provided. Coffee, Tea & Beer by donation.
This sceening will commence at 6pm sharp. film length is approx an hour and a half, which means you’ll be able to get out in time to head to people’s kitchen at monster mouse!
