Theater of War Productions in partnership with The Brooklyn Railpresent:

Mothers of the Movement: Gwen Carr and Valerie Bell

A conversation with Gwen Carr—mother of Eric Garner, author of This Stops Today—and Valerie Bell—mother of Sean Bell, author of Just 23—about their tireless work as Mothers of the Movement to end police violence.

Co-hosted by Dominic Dupont and Bryan Doerries of Theater of War Productions as part of The New Social Environment’s Common Ground Series.

“My son was murdered in 2014. George Floyd was murdered in 2020. Those were not the only two murders that happened. Every time that you hear another black unarmed man being killed, shot in the back, or banged up against the sidewalk, or tased to death, you say, ‘Oh my God, that’s my son again.’” —Gwen Carr

"I couldn’t watch the video. I said to myself 'here we go again.’” — Valerie Bell

The event Zoom link will be distributed and available to registered attendees starting 2 days prior to the event.

We will open the discussion to the audience, co-facilitated by Bryan Doerries and Dominic Dupont. During the discussion, please raise your hand using the button at the bottom center of the screen. If called upon, you will be promoted to speak and you will be visible and heard by the entire audience for the duration of your comments. If you would prefer not to be seen, please disable your video when entering the event.
