Movie and Discussion Night for Teachers

This Monday, join your colleagues at CEA for a journey back to 18th-century Britain by attending a free showing of the movie Belle. CEA’s Human and Civil Rights (HCR) Commission is hosting the movie night and will also be providing a light dinner and popcorn.

“It’s an opportunity to get out and be with colleagues in a relaxed environment that will allow for genuine, thought-provoking conversation,” says HCR Commission Chair Jennifer Jasenski.

The event, to be held at CEA Headquarters in Hartford on Monday, November 17, will run from 5 to 8 p.m. and is open to all CEA members. Free on-site parking is provided.

Register here.

Belle is a 2013 British drama based on the true story of a mixed-race woman raised in upper-crust 18th-century British society. Jasenski says that, although the movie is historical, its themes are still relevant today. Read more
