Dr. Wes Bellamy Presents: “A Time to Yell: More Than A Statue” Screening

Join us for an exclusive screening of the highly anticipated documentary A Time to Yell: More Than A Statue, presented by Dr. Wes Bellamy and the Tonsler League. This compelling film delves into the untold story of the Charlottesville community’s experience during the infamous “Unite the Right” rally on August 12th, 2017.

Through the lens of Dr. Wes Bellamy and the community, the documentary recounts the events surrounding the rally, a day notorious for its violence and hateful rhetoric. While many are familiar with the chaos that unfolded, this film reveals the deeper, less publicized narratives of those who lived through these pivotal moments. A Time to Yell: More Than A Statue explores the history and context behind these racially motivated attacks, providing a profound understanding of one of the most divisive conflicts in modern American history.

Be a part of this enlightening experience and gain a comprehensive perspective on the factors that led to the rally and its aftermath. Following the screening, engage in an insightful panel discussion moderated by Dr. Ashonta Wyatt. The panel will feature esteemed guests:
