Human Rights Film Series to Focus on the World of Slums

A screening of Fourth World, a film that explores the lives of one-sixth of the world's population who live in deplorable slums, woefully oppressed and largely forgotten by the affluent developed nations, will be the next screening in the Duquesne University Human Rights Film Series, Oppression and Opportunity.

Experts bring understanding to the 'why' of slums and the possible consequences the world may face if this social powder keg is ignored.

Following the film, Luke L. Hingson, president of the Brother's Brother Foundation, will lead a brief discussion and answer questions related to the film.

When: Wednesday, Feb. 18, at 7 p.m.

Where: Room 105 College Hall, Duquesne University, 600 Forbes Ave., Pittsburgh.

Information: Free admission. For more information visit the Duquesne University Human Rights Film Series on Facebook and Twitter, or call 412.396.6415.
