Celebrate Black History Month: Join the Office of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Accessibility for a conversation with award-winning Director and Producer Cassidy Friedman, presenting the importance of centering the experiences and stories of ordinary people who are often marginalized in our society through cinematic documentaries.

Cassidy’s production company Stories that Matter uncovers the truth about being human, that pain is often hidden and universal, and the human spirit's will to thrive is what binds each of us together as siblings. Cassidy explores the sometimes difficult relationship between justice, freedom, ethnicity, color, and economics. 

Through Stories Matter Media, Cassidy Friedman has directed the feature-length critically-acclaimed documentary, CIRCLES (2018), which follows a dedicated high- school counselor who struggles to balance the energy he pours into supporting his at-risk students and his relationship with his own son. 

Refreshments will be served!
