During Black History month, Grand Rapids Right to Life sponsored a one-night-only screening of the film Created Equal: Clarence Thomas In His Own Words.
Held at Celebration! Cinema North, the 170-seat theater was sold out days before the event was hosted on Thursday, February 10. Attendees included families, couples, pastors, and new supporters.
Created Equal told Thomas’ personal odyssey from growing up in extreme poverty in the segregated South to becoming one of the most influential justices on the U.S. Supreme Court. The documentary proceeded chronologically, combining Thomas’ first-person account of his life with a rich array of historical material and personal photos. The film dealt with race, faith, power, jurisprudence, and personal resilience.
Before the movie began, a presentation on the movie screen provided important educational information about fetal development and abortion.
Laura Alexandria, president, welcomed the guests and explained a pro-abortion effort in Michigan. She exhorted people not to sign a petition that would soon be circulating and, if successful, would place on the November ballot a proposal to make unlimited access to abortion enshrined in the Michigan constitution.
