Vernon Jordan: Make it Plain Screening

December 15, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

You’re invited to join WFYI in an advance screening of “Vernon Jordan: Make it Plain” before it airs on Monday, December 28.

“Vernon Jordan: Make It Plain” explores Vernon Jordan’s rise from the segregated
South, his tenure as the head of several civil rights organizations, and his current
position as a partner at a corporate law firm and financial behemoth Lazard. Jordan is
one of the most influential African American thought leaders in America.

Through a series of interviews with Vernon Jordan, his family, business associates and
friends, we learn just how he made this meteoric rise to power and fortune, and what
sacrifices he made along the way. In revisiting his significant contributions to civil rights
history and rise to prominent positions of influence, the film tells not only the story of
Jordan’s personal rise, but also explores just who we think of, and what we ask
of, Civil Rights leaders.

This virtual screening will include a chat, polls and more so you can feel like we are in-person together! We will be using OVEE, a web-based platform for this screening. All that you’ll need is an internet connection.

This event is FREE but requires registration. A link to the screening will be sent an hour before the event starts.
