A new film of social and historical meaning from the local public television station KSPS aims to both entertain and educate. After nearly 18 months of production comes the premiere of Carl Maxey: A Fighting Life, celebrating the life and work of its namesake: local lawyer and civil rights activist Carl Maxey. The documentary airs on PBS the same night as a special benefit screening and reception, proceeds from which will help fund this project and more like it. For locals, however, celebrating Maxey’s life doesn’t end after the screening. On the following morning (Friday, Feb. 19, at 10 am), there’s a public forum at Gonzaga Law School on the state of civil rights in Washington, featuring prominent panelists: authors Jim Kerschner and Dr. Dwayne Mack, GU law professor Jason Gilmer, and Harvard Law graduate Emily Chiang.

Thu, Feb. 18, at 6:30 pm • $50 • Bing Crosby Theater • 901 W. Sprague • bingcrosbytheater.com • 227-7638
