Outta the Muck is a featured film in the Southern Documentary Fund film circuit throughout November and will premiere its national broadcast on Independent Lens on February 6, 2022. Told through stories that transcend space and time, Outta The Muck presents a community, and a family, that resists despair with love, remaining fiercely self-determined, while forging its own unique narrative of Black achievement.

Parham Policy Day has been an annual event with the School of Social Work since 2003 and honors Thomas M. “Jim” Parham, a former School of Social Work faculty member. Mr. Parham helped to shape public social policy under President Jimmy Carter and three Georgia governors. Parham Policy Day was established by Dr. June Gary Hopps, the Thomas M. “Jim” Parham Professor of Family and Children Studies and remains a cherished annual event.
All proceeds from ticket sales and donations will benefit the Georgia Conflict Center. For more information about GCC visit: https://www.gaconflict.org
