In celebration of "Madison County Reads: Wicked City by Ace Atkins," we will screen the movie "The Phenix City Story." In this semi-documentary, an Alabama town is run by a crime syndicate that's grown fat on prostitution and crooked gambling, directed at soldiers from Fort Benning across the river. Lawyer John Patterson, back from the army, is triggered by what he sees to join the reformers with a plan: to run his father Albert for state attorney general. The syndicate responds with escalating violence: is no one safe?

Credits are preceded by a 'newscast' containing spoilers.
Runtime 87 minutes. Read more about Wicked City Movie: "The Phenix City Story"

Title: 
Same Kind of Different as Me

****Please Note: Book Club is rescheduled from Tues, May 3rd. ****

Meet Denver, a man raised under plantation-style slavery in Louisiana in the 1960s; a man who escaped, hopping a train to wander, homeless, for eighteen years on the streets of Dallas, Texas. No longer a slave, Denver's life was still hopeless-until God moved. First came a godly woman who prayed, listened, and obeyed. And then came her husband, Ron, an international arts dealer at home in a world of Armani-suited millionaires. And then they all came together.

But slavery takes many forms. Deborah discovers that she has cancer. In the face of possible death, she charges her husband to rescue Denver. Who will be saved, and who will be lost? What is the future for these unlikely three? What is God doing? Read more about Eleanor Murphy Book Club: Same Kind of Different as Me
