As a young man in Kenya, Chris Mburu’s life was forever changed by one small act of kindness and generosity. Now a Harvard graduate and a human rights lawyer for the United Nations, Chris decides to find the stranger that changed his life and starts a scholarship program for youth in her name (the Hilde Back Education Fund). With clarity and grace, A Small Act, bears witness to the ripple effect a single action can create. Join us for this FREE screening of the award-winning film A Small Act, which documents Chris’ incredible story.

Chris Cummins will moderate a post-screening Q&A with director Jennifer Arnold (live) and subject Chris Mburu (via Skype).
