For those of you in the Twin Towns, please join the Tucker Center for a free public screening of “In the Game,” [website] a moving documentary revealing how race, class, and gender intersect with sport to impact the lives of players on an inner city girls’ soccer team. Produced by two-time Peabody award winner Maria Finitzo, "In the Game" has been called “deeply empowering,” “compelling,” “powerful,” and “inspirational.”

This rescheduled event will take place on Tuesday, March 29 at 7pm in the Beacon Room at the University of Minnesota Recreation & Wellness Center on the East Bank campus. No ticket or registration is required.
