A private screening of Profiled, was held at The 8th Floor Event Gallery on Wednesday, January 27th, 2016.  Profiled, a documentary, directed by Kathleen Foster, knits the stories of mothers of black and Latin youth murdered by the NYPD into a powerful indictment of racial profiling and police brutality, and places them within a historical context of the roots of racism in the U.S.

The film got a standing ovation and was followed by a lively Q&A as a panel of people interviewed in the film and audience members discussed one of the most burning issues of our time, the persistence of racial inequality.
