My film about Beatrice Mtetwa is having its worldwide television premiere on KCETLink, the national independent public media organization. The film chronicles Beatrice’s work as a courageous human rights attorney fighting against social and political inequalities in Zimbabwe. The film will air on Link TV (DirecTV 375 and DISH Network 9410) on Wednesday, Oct. 15 at 9 p.m. PT/ET and on KCET (Southern California) on Wednesday, Nov. 5 at 9 p.m. PT. The film will also be available online starting Oct. 15 at linktv.org/mtetwa.
Subsequent air dates of the film will coincide with the Ivan Allen Jr. Prize for Social Courage presented by Georgia Tech honoring Beatrice Mtetwa on Thursday, Nov. 13, 2014. The Ivan Allen Jr. Prize for Social Courage recognizes individuals around the world who, by asserting moral principle, have positively affected public discourse at the risk of their careers, livelihoods, and sometimes lives.
On Nov. 11, I will be in Atlanta with Beatrice for a screening moderated by Jacqueline J. Royster, Dean of the Georgia Tech Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts, starting at 8 p.m. ET. KCETLink will also be accepting questions and streaming the event live via it’s website at linktv.org/mtetwa. Alternatively, viewers can submit questions for Beatrice via Twitter and Facebook using the hashtag #allenprize.
