Changing the World, One Wall at a Time tells the story of Education Is Not A Crime–one of the world’s largest street art and human rights campaign to raise awareness of education discrimination by Iran’s government against tens of thousands of young Bahá’ís.

The film features interviews with popular street artists from around the world – as well as activists with experience of the Civil Rights movement, the anti-Apartheid struggle in South Africa, and human rights work on behalf of Iranians of all backgrounds. Iranian Bahá’ís with personal experience of being denied their right to higher education also share their stories.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with, Dr. La Marr Jurelle Bruce, Assistant Professor of American Studies, UMD, College Park, Audra Buck-Coleman, Associate Professor and Graphic Design Program Director at the University of Maryland, College Park, and Dr. Catherine Knight Steele, Assistant Professor, Department of Communication, UMD, College Park.
