Two FREE Screenings of film 'American Violet' to be hosted in Houston; true story based on a Black woman's fight against the U.S. war on drugs policy

AMERICAN VIOLET, a Samuel Goldwyn film is scheduled to be released April 17, 2009; in certain parts of the country, however, it will be viewed in Houston, Texas on Monday April 20 and Tuesday April 21st at Regal Edward Greenway 24 Theater located at 3839 Weslayan St., Houston, TX 77027, beginning at 7:00 p.m.

Houston Councilman Jarvis Johnson is joined by Black United Fund of Texas, COTER, Gift of Life Drug-Free, Black Women for a Changing Society, and the Multi Cultural Film Festival in hosting a very thought-provoking and passionate film about the pain of what can kill a family, destroy trust, terminate faith, unravel a community and create pandemonium in a city, when the law wears blinders with ear muffs and law and order, is out of order.

Councilman Johnson states "we must be ever vigilant in making sure there is fair justice, not just us."

Admission is free but you must RSVP.
