Fit Oshkosh, Inc. Hosts a Community Movie Night and Chat Back

Fit Oshkosh, Inc., a grassroots, nonprofit organization devoted to providing Racial Literacy and Technology Literacy to adults in Winnebago County is hosting a Community Movie Night and Chat Back on Saturday, January 31, 2015, at The Oshkosh Masonic Center at 204 Washington Ave, in Oshkosh, WI from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The cost of admission is $3.00 for students and $6.50 for all others. Concessions will be available. The proceeds will be used to support Racial Literacy learning.

Attendees will watch the highly-acclaimed 1998 motion picture "American History X."  It is a provocative movie that touches on the current-day themes of race, politics, socioeconomics, religion, masculinity, and family dynamics. The movie will be followed by a Chat Back, which is a facilitated conversation about these topics.

Fit Oshkosh’s Executive Director, Tracey Robertson, describes the value of this kind of event: “Movies are a comfortable way for individuals to talk through some of the challenging issues that are being played out on a national level and closer to home here in Winnebago County. We use this movie-model in other trainings and we know that it is a non-threatening way for people from all walks of life to have authentic conversations. Typically people don’t talk beyond the surface with these topics because they do not know how. A Chat Back gives attendees a place to ask critical questions and to learn with one another.”

The movie is Rated R for violence, sex, nudity and strong language.

Tickets go on sale on December 31, 2014 and can be purchased by email at, by calling 920-216-3107, or at the door.

Fit Oshkosh offers Racial Literacy Workshops throughout Winnebago County to nonprofit organizations, schools, university classes, faith groups, and businesses. For more information, please call 920-216-3107.
