//MARVELOUS MOVIE MONDAYS//
Given the moral crisis we are facing and the urgency to fight white supremacy and support Black liberation, Marvelous Movie Mondays is shifting its focus for a bit. We support the efforts of our June guest curator, Nicole Elaine Baker, to use this platform to share relevant anti-racist resources and films and amplify Black voices.
Love and solidarity to all who are fighting against police violence, anti-Blackness, and white supremacy.

Statement from MMM curator Nicole Elaine Baker:
In light of recent events in the US and worldwide, the EPFC and I agreed that the space usually dedicated to Marvelous Movie Mondays would be better utilized to help educate on anti-racism, and amplify Black voices with films by Black filmmakers that focus on Black lives and experience.
I appreciate the opportunity offered by the EPFC to curate MMM and look forward to doing so at a future time.
