Join filmmaker Aaron Greer for a viewing and a discussion of the soon to be released, Tallgrass Film Festival nominee, Service to Man.
Short synopsis: Two outsiders from radically different backgrounds struggle to find common purpose within the pressure cooker of Nashville’s all-black medical school in the 1960's. When everyone was choosing sides, they chose each other.
The film is about race, social justice, a country in transition during the peak of Martin Luther King Jr.'s work, and so much more. The film is based on a true story at Nashville, Tennessee's Meharry Medical College during the 1960's. Meharry’s motto was "Worship of God Through Service to Mankind.”
