Aftershock is co-directed by Tonya Lewis Lee and Paula Eiselt. This groundbreaking documentary that follows the lives of two bereaved Black fathers (Bruce Mcintyre and Omari Maynard) as they navigate life and fatherhood after the preventable deaths of their partners, Amber Rose Issac and Shamony Gibson.

"When Black mothers die, there is a ripple effect. We call it Aftershock."

Indiana has one of the highest infant mortality rates in the nation, especially among black women. Join us to watch Aftershock and become more aware of the issue our community is facing. There will be a panel discussion afterwards to from various experts in the community to help give solutions for issues some are facing.

Light refreshments will be served.
