In His Own Home” is a documentary about the March 2010 shooting of an unarmed disabled black graduate student by campus police at the University of Florida and the failure of the administration to address the racism and
over-militarization of its police force. It tells the story of Kofi Adu Brempong, a Ghanaian graduate student, disabled by childhood polio, attacked by a campus Critical Incident Response Team bungled response to a
911 call from a neighbor. It is about students whose protests led the administration to drop fake charges against Kofi and whose continued activism challenges police brutality. *In His Own Home* speaks to police
racism and the militarization of our campuses nationwide

The film was made and produced in Gainesville, FL.

The director, Malini Schueller along with community members featured in the film, Dr. Paul Ortiz or the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program, NKwanda Jah, director of the Wilhelmina Johnson Center , and local activists will join us afterward for a discussion and Q&A about the making of the film and the shooting and
resulting protests.
