Dope is Death (dir. Mia Donovan, 2020)

Join us at the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery’s OtterBox Digital Dome Theater for a free screening of the documentary Dope is Death and stay for a conversation following the film.

“With blight ravaging New York City in the 1970s, the Young Lords and Black Panthers fought for radical change in their communities. Through the leadership of Dr. Mutulu Shakur—Tupac Shakur’s stepfather—these activists created the first acupuncture detoxification program in the United States. While the legacy of the program has long been maintained by the residents of the Bronx and Upper Manhattan, the individuals responsible for its creation have suffered from decades of state-sanctioned persecution.”
