Empowerful screens second film 

Pink Dog productions and Mulgrave Park residents creative collaboration

On Tuesday, January 24 at 7pm, the public is invited to the see the second video in the "Empowerful" series project, produced by local company Pink Dog.

The first screened last winter, where African-Canadian youth from North and East Preston worked with members of their communities to make a video on their first hero, Sinclair Williams, the first Black police officer in Dartmouth.

The second is another documentary-style video, launched by the youth and seniors of Mulgrave Park to celebrate one of their local African-Canadian heroes, Evelina Upshaw, a leader in neighbourhood activism.

The screening will be held at the Mulgrave Park Baptist Church Hall, 5676 Sebastian Street.
