MILWAUKEE, Wis. – October 25, 2022 – The Wisconsin Anti-Violence Effort Educational Fund (WAVE) recently announced a free virtual screening of the Emmy award winning Documentary When Claude Got Shot on Tuesday, November 1 at 5:00 p.m.

A discussion with Claude Motley and the film’s director, Brad Lichtenstein, will take place immediately after the screening, around 6:45 p.m..

The documentary follows Claude Motley and the person who shot him. It chronicles Claude’s physical recovery and his internal struggle to find what justice and forgiveness look like in a country where Black men are disproportionately impacted by both gun violence and the incarceration system.

“For many of us, discussions of gun violence are difficult and painful. Yet there are times when it can be an important part of a healing journey,” said Deja Garner, program director for WAVE. “It is in the spirit of healing – both personally and as a community – that we hope you will join us for this online screening and a powerful community discussion.”
