UPCOMING REENTRY EVENT AT
MAIN LIBRARY, 60 SOUTH HIGH ST., AKRON

THURSDAY, MARCH 1ST
11:00AM – 1:00PM

Reentry in Motion: Fight Hate
Ma
in Library Room 1

As a young man, Michael Ta’Bon’s ex-con father taught him about drugs and crime, and those lessons landed him in prison for 15 years. During his incarceration, Michael promised himself that he would one day start a movement to prevent young African American people from getting caught in the cycle of violence he found himself in. The film Fight Hate with Love: One Man’s Journey to Change the World, will reveal how the years in prison left Michael with invisible scars and a commitment to community work, which cost him his family. Reentry resources and handouts provided. Audience discussion after the film.
