Rachel Lyon’s 2004 documentary Hate Crimes in the Heartland explores current and past hate crimes that have been committed in America by studying two that occurred in Tulsa, Okla. — the 1921 Race Riots and the 2012 shootings that targeted African-Americans. Mayerson JCC will screen the film Tuesday. A panel discussion afterward will include Lyon; Rabbi Dr. Gary Zola, historian of American Jewry; Cincinnati Chief of Police Jeffrey Blackwell; Shakila T. Ahmad, president of the Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati; and Local 12’s Dan Hurley.
7 p.m. Tuesday. Free. Mayerson JJC, 8485 Ridge Road, Amberley, mayersonjcc.org.
