"Amazing Grace" at the Libertarian Movie Night
Thursday, April 8th, 7PM at Brave New Books, 1904 Guadalupe in Austin
Amazing Grace chronicles the 25 year struggle of William Wilberforce, an independent Member of Parliament to end the slave trade in the British Empire and is based closely upon the true story. In the movie, Wilberforce must decide whether to continue his long struggle to end slavery or dedicate himself to his Christian faith as a church pastor.
The movie provides a unique Christian viewpoint of the Liberty Movement, and fascinating details of politics, tactics, and personalities in the 18th century British Empire.
This is a great opportunity to explore the moral and spiritual implications of Liberty and the morality of practical politics.
Free popcorn and refreshments will be provided.
Contact Robert Butler if you have questions at [masked].
Next month, we'll feature American Gangster, another true story, about the Vietnam War and the American government's involvement in the heroin trade.
