Councilman khalid kamau’s monthly summer block party series continues this Friday, July 12 at Creel Park (2775 Creel Road) at 7:00 p.m. The event will include live music, food trucks and an outdoor screening of “The Hate U Give.” Based on the New York Times-bestselling novel by Angie Thomas, the film centers on a teen who witnesses the fatal shooting of her friend at the hands of police.
In addition to outdoor screenings, each “South Fulton Summer” block party also features a community conversation on the themes in the films. This week, Black Lives Matter activists and Police Chief Keith Meadows will participate in the panel discussion on modern policing.
Parking at Creel Park is free but limited. Additional free parking is available at Creel Park C.M.E. Church (2750 Creel Road) and Love T. Nolan Elementary School (2725 Creel Road).
