The documentary is a "Long Night's Journey Into Day".  That screening will be held on Wednesday, September 19th at 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. in the Eagan Learning Center Lectorium.  Tutu says "Rather than focus on what separates us",  we should "focus on our shared humanity in order to build a just world."  Tutu will present how we can begin to heal as individuals and a society.  
Nobel Peace Prize nominee, Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish will also be in Louisville and he will discuss his book "I Shall Not Hate: A Gaza Doctor's Journey on the Road to Peace.  Dr. Abuelaish loss three daughters and a niece to violence.  He says hate always brings poison, a disease, a fire that eats the one who carries it.  He established the Daughters for Life Foundation, which is dedicated to providing education, health, and leadership courses, so that other girls can live out their dreams.  

Tickets are $10 for general admission and free for all students with I.D.  To R.S.V.P. contact jwilliams17@spalding.edu.  Seating is limited.
