Writ Writer, a documentary film by Susanne Mason, is the riveting story of Fred Arispe Cruz, a Mexican American who fearlessly struggled for prisoners to seek their legal rights, in the horrendous conditions of the Texas State Prison system in the 1960s. His hard-won success changed the history of prisoner's right in Texas forever.

The film is presented by the Appreciating Diversity Film Series. On December 1 at 6:30pm we will have light refreshments; at 7pm the film (60 minutes) and at 8pm a community discussion.
