The Athens-Clarke County Library and Chess and Community are hosting a free screening of the documentary “Knights to Kings: A Journey to Ethiopia” at the Athens-Clarke County Library on Thursday.

Eight teen boys from Athens and surrounding counties are led by Athens poet and community activist Lemuel LaRoche as they journey to Ethiopia. The film is meant to speak to the core of positive youth identity and community intervention.

Following the screening will be a discussion on youth engagement and youth identity in Athens. Attendees will meet with local non-profits and community programs that focus on youth development in the Athens area.

The family-friendly program is sponsored by Reflecting, Sharing, Learning. Families with teens are encouraged to attend.

The program will begin at 5 p.m. For more information about this event, call the library at (706) 613-3650, or visit www.athenslibrary.org/athens.
