** If we want to build a new tomorrow, we must dismantle an oppressive NOW. The mentality that leads to countless deaths of Black Americans is the same mentality that keeps lines drawn, hatred alive, and injustice flourishing. Enough is enough.

We're starting the very important conversation of inequality in relation to the ocean and the environmental movement on World Oceans Day by hosting a special screening TODAY at 2 pm PT of the documentary, White Wash with a panel discussion following at 3:30 pm PT featuring:

Angela Sun: Spectrum News anchor, documentarian, Tedx speaker, adventurer
Graham Hamilton: Surfrider LA Chapter Coordinator and ACTORVIST: performance and ocean advocacy on Tongva & Chumash lands
Air Copeland: 5 Gyres Executive Director, producer of White Wash
Moderated by Danni Washington: 1st Black Woman Science TV Host, correspondent on Emmy-nominated Unstoppable, host of Xploration Station

White Wash, the documentary, is a film exploring the complexity of race in America through the eyes of the ocean. Examining the history of "black consciousness" as it triumphs and evolves into the minds of black surfers, we learn the power of transcending race as a constructive phenomenon. The story is narrated by the legendary, Grammy Award winner Ben Harper (Fistful of Mercy, Ben Harper and the Innocent Criminals) along with Tariq "Blackthought" Trotter of the Grammy Award winning hip hop group, The Roots whom also originally scored the film.

The film is produced by 5 Gyres Executive Director, Air Copeland.

Thank you all for joining us for this panel and discussion.
