Empowerment Is The Theme For Season 6 of Lights! Camera ! Politics!

(ASBURY PARK, NJ) -- “EMPOWERMENT!” is the theme of Season #6 of Lights! Camera! Politics! Film Season at The Stephen Crane House in Asbury Park. Three classic films featuring stories of individuals who embraced empowerment through action will be shown on First Saturday afternoons this season: Norma Rae; The Landlord; and Mildred Pierce.
