"Injustice Anywhere" (2016)

Filmmaker Aziza Binti describes the documentary as such: "Social justice is not just "their" problem; it's everyone's concern. We reference the quote from the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. -- 'Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere' -- to open the film and begin speaking with members of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) about their understanding that this is indeed everyone's issue--especially those who are truly Disciples of Christ." 

Following the fatal shooting of young adult Michael Brown on August 9, 2014, by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, several Disciples clergy and laypersons joined many others in community responses for justice in Ferguson and beyond.
