Director Ryan Coogler’s film Fruitvale Station follows the true story of Oscar Grant, a 22-year-old Bay Area resident who wakes up on the morning of Dec. 31, 2008, and feels something in the air. Not sure what it is, he takes it as a sign to get a head start on his resolutions: Being a better son to his mother, being a better partner to his girlfriend Sophina, and being a better father to Tatiana, their beautiful 4-year-old daughter. His resolve takes a tragic turn at the Fruitvale subway stop on New Year’s Day. Oscar’s life and tragic death would shake the Bay Area – and the entire nation – to its very core. See this compelling film on Sunday, Nov. 10, at 2 p.m. in Taylor Little Theatre. Learn more.
