|Art and Democracy Film Series presents "War Child"|
The Institute for Philosophy in Public Life will be presenting the film "War Child" 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 27, at the Empire Arts Center. This event is free and open to the public.
Hip hop artist Emmanuel Jal, a former child soldier in Sudan’s brutal civil war, was “forced to sin” but determined to “never give up and never give in.” Today, wounded but still hopeful, he fights a new battle: bringing peace to his beloved Sudan and building schools in Africa. This time, his weapon is a microphone. See why audiences from New York to Berlin to London rave about the award-winning film, War Child, and have embraced the hip-hop artist with a terrifying past and a gentle soul.
