America By The Numbers!
Thanks, everybody, for coming out on Monday Sept. 17th! We all saw the preview screening of the new documentary "America By The Numbers with Maria Hinojosa: Clarkston Georgia" at the Clarkston Community Center. The film was great, and hearing Maria and residents involved with the film talk about it afterward was so exciting! It was a great experience!
Didn't make the event? Don't miss the movie (below)!
