UMBC to host May 10 screening on Catonsville Nine's protest

The University of Maryland, Baltimore County, will host a reception and screening before next week's 45th anniversary of the Catonsville Nine's dramatic anti-war protest on Frederick Road in Catonsville.

On Friday, May 10, the school will host an opening reception at 2:30 p.m. featuring artwork from one of the Catonsville Nine, the late Tom Lewis, in the Proscenium Theatre in the Performing Arts and Humanities Building.

A film screening of Lynne Sachs's documentary, "Investigation of a Flame," and film clips of the just-released film by Joe Tropea and Skizz Cyzyk, "Hit and Stay," will be at 3 p.m.

Following the screenings will be a commentary and discussion by a panel that includes Sachs, Tropea and Karen Aguilar-San, a sociologist of Vietnamese identity.

Joining the panel will be Catonsville Nine participants, and lifelong scholar activists, Tom and Margarita Melville.
