How do those subjected to profoundest trauma and rejection begin to heal themselves and change the course of their lives?
The documentary Voices Beyond the Wall: Twelve Love Poems from the Murder Capital of the World features the stories of orphaned girls in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, who find their voices in poetry, and Spencer Reece, an award-winning American poet and Episcopal priest, who came to live with them and help them create a book of their own poems.
United is pleased to host a 7 p.m. screening of Voices Beyond the Wall with Spencer Reece. Before the film, Spencer will talk about his experiences working with the girls and share some of their poems.
A limited number of tickets are available for a 5:30 p.m. dinner with Spencer prior to the event.
For details and to purchase tickets for the screening and/or the dinner, please visit our Eventbrite page.
Our gated lot to the north of the building will be open for this event. Please check our parking and directions page for more details.
Join us for our next, upcoming Student/Faculty Conversation and let’s continue our conversation about new and upcoming happenings, including a new MA in Eco-Justice, Spring Symposium Week, an update on our World Religions and Intercultural Studies Faculty hire, our new Chaplain job posting, and any other items or questions you want to bring. As usual, we will limit each contribution/question to two per student to make space for all voices to be heard.
