Not in Our Town Film Screening and Panel Discussion on Race and Diversity

A screening of “A Continuing Series of Small Indignities: A Personal Conversation About Race,” a documentary film, is the impetus for a community discussion on race and building a more inclusive, accepting and safe community. The Canton Response to Hate Crime Coalition will host the screening on Friday, November 3, 2017, at the Village Theater at Cherry Hill. It will be followed by a moderated community conversation and panel discussion featuring Harris, filmmaker Michael Pfaendtner, and other representatives from the Canton community.

The documentary, produced and directed by Michigan filmmaker Michael Pfaendtner, premiered at the 2017 Freep Film Festival and was also been shown at the Trinity International Film Festival and the Royal Starr Film Festival. It follows the personal experience of 59-year-old Rodney Harris as he recounts a lifetime of subtle and not-so-subtle racism.

The event is coordinated by the Canton Response to Hate Crime Coalition (CRHCC).

This Not in Our Town event is November 3 at 7:00 PM at the Village Theater at Cherry Hill, 50400 Cherry Hill Road, Canton, MI. There is no cost to attend.


According to Canton Focus another show is taking place on November 3rd at 7:00 at Village Theater at Cherry Hill. Is the documentary on race relations listed in Sunday's Observer which is suppose to take place that same night an error?


The Village Theater at Cherry Hill has several performance spaces and they are able to host more than one show per night so the mention in Sunday's Observer is not an error.

Thanks for asking!

If it's not taking place in the theater itself, do you know what room it will be in? The impression I get from the Canton Focus is the "Men are Dogs" will be in the theater at 7:30 on Friday November 3rd.

The theater itself will have more information on the location of the event, and their phone number is 734-394-5300.


I got my answer in today's Observer...the play is in the Biltmore Studio so the documentary will be in the theater. Thanks for your help.
