NAJA and Gaylord College present a screening of 'Shadows of Liberty' documentary Oct. 16

October 16th, 2014 6:30 PM - 10:00 PM

Norman, Okla. — The 'Shadows of Liberty' Coast to Coast Screening & Media Reform Action Tour will come to the University of Oklahoma Thursday, Oct. 16 beginning at 7 p.m., in the Ethics & Excellence in Journalism Foundation Auditorium, Gaylord Hall Room 1140 (395 W. Lindsey, Norman, OK 73019). 

The documentary film Shadows of Liberty reveals the truth behind the news media: censorship, cover-ups and corporate control.

In highly revealing stories, renowned journalists, activists and academics including DANNY GLOVER, JULIAN ASSANGE, DAN RATHER, AMY GOODMAN, DAVID SIMON, NORMON SOLOMON, BOB BEAR, ROBERTA BASKIN, JOHN MACARTHUR, DANIEL ELLSBERG and KRISTINA BORJESSON give insider accounts of a broken media system. Controversial news reports are suppressed, people are censored for speaking out, and lives are shattered as the arena for public expression is turned into a private profit zone.

'Shadows Of Liberty' is dedicated to the journalists and information freedom fighters, the heroes of our time, who dedicate their lives to our right to freedom of information - the central pillar of a free society. 'Shadows of Liberty' provides a platform for voices that have been silenced and in doing so, attempts to inspire change and accountability. This film champions the idea of an independent media where truth and integrity are the norm, not the exception.

There will be a highly engaging panel discussion with Osage News editor Shannon Shaw-Duty and a representative from the OU Gaylord College following the film. 

Tickets are available online or at the door. A suggested donation of $5 or more is appreciated. Visit the Facebook event page for more information: https://www.facebook.com/events/705863322828592/.
