Beatrice Mtetwa and the Rule of Law Documentary Film Screening

Primary tabs

Beatrice Mtetwa and the Rule of Law is a documentary film featuring the winner of this year's Ivan Allen Prize for Social Courage, human rights defender Beatrice Mtetwa. In spite of beatings by police and being arrested and jailed, Mtetwa has courageously defended in court those jailed by the Mugabe government in Zimbabwe—peace activists, journalists, opposition candidates, farmers that have had their land confiscated, and ordinary citizens that had the courage to speak up.

The Ivan Allen Jr. Prize for Social Courage is given annually to individuals who, by asserting moral principle, have positively affected public discourse at the risk of their careers, livelihoods, and sometimes lives.

This event is part of a series of events hosted by the Ivan Allen College from November 11 - 13 to commemorate Beatrice Mtetwa with the Allen Prize and extend its support in her fight against injustice.
