     With the ascension of Frederick William II, new censorship policies were established that sought to undo the pro-Enlightenment reforms of his predecessor, Frederick the Great. Rather than accede to these new policies, Kant chose to circumvent them, publishing "Religion within the Boundaries of Mere Reason" in spite of an express ban to do so. In the Preface to that book, Kant defends his position. However, the defense that he offers articulates a very different relationship between philosophy and theology than what we find in the actual body of Religion. At stake are such questions as: What role (if any) should Scripture have in philosophy? Is there a common rational core to all historical faiths? If so, what is this core and what is the status of all the ecclesiastical rituals, traditions and beliefs that fall outside of it?

    Winner of both the Grand Jury Prize for dramatic feature and the Audience Award for U.S. dramatic film at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, director Ryan Coogler's Fruitvale Station follows the true story of Oscar Grant (Michael B. Jordan), a 22-year-old Bay Area resident who wakes up on the morning of December 31, 2008 and feels something in the air. Not sure what it is, he takes it as a sign to get a head start on his resolutions: being better son to his mother (Octavia Spencer), whose birthday falls on New Year's Eve, being a better partner to his girlfriend Sophina (Melonie Diaz), whom he hasn't been completely honest with as of late, and being a better father to Tatiana (Ariana Neal), their beautiful four year-old daughter.

    Crossing paths with friends, family and strangers, Oscar starts out well, as the day goes on, he realizes that changes are not going to come easily. His resolve takes a tragic turn, however, when BART officers shoot him in cold blood at the Fruitvale subway stop on New Year's Day. Oscar's life and tragic death would shake the Bay Area - and the entire nation - to its very core.

    Co-presented by EBONI and the Office office of Multicultural Student Affairs for African American Heritage Month.
