This Hispanic Heritage Month the documentary film La Manplesa invites us to reflect on a societal flashpoint impacting D.C.’s Latino community. The University of the District of Columbia invites everyone to attend the free premiere on Thursday, October 6. This film details the 1991 protests in Mount Pleasant spurred by the police shooting of Salvadoran man Daniel Gomez. Part of the PBS documentary series America ReFramed, this film tells the story of one of DC’s first barrios. The screening will be followed by a discussion with the filmmakers.
