HYDE PARK — The University of Chicago will host a free screening of a new documentary about gun violence, followed by a discussion with experts working on the effects of gun violence on the South Side.
The university’s School of Social Service Administration will screen “Making A Killing: Guns, Greed and the NRA” at 3 p.m. Monday at the Max Palevsky Theater in Ida Noyes Hall, 1212 E. 59th St.
The documentary by Robert Greenwald examines how public advocacy by the National Rifle Association has enriched gun manufacturers and the emotional toll increased gun violence has taken on Americans.
After the screening Pediatric Trauma Coordinator at Comer Children’s Hospital Michele Harris-Rosado, gun control activist Pam Montgomery-Bosley and co-director of the university’s Crime Lab Harold Pollack will talk about how gun violence has affected the South Side and possible solutions.
