Civil Rights Sundays: Who Is Dayani Cristal?

Jul 21, 2014 by Sherard Duvall on The Nickelodeon Blog

We continued our Civil Rights Sunday on yesterday with a screening of Marc Silver’s powerful documentary “Who is Dayani Cristal?”, a film about the found┬ábody of an unidentified immigrant in the Arizona Desert and the attempt to retrace his path and discover his story.Following the film we had an in-depth discussion about the United States’ current immigration laws and the struggles of immigrants crossing the Mexican border. We would like to thank SC Appleseed Legal Justice Center’s Tammy Besherse, the University of South Carolina’s Myriam Torres, Cecilia Rodriguez from the United Way and rising University of South Carolina sophomore Joel Lucia. Take a look at some of the photos from our event below.
