Scarecrow Video and Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau team up for 'The End of Atticus Finch?'

On January 17 at 7pm, local 501(c)(3) Scarecrow Video, the largest private video library in the world, is partnering with Humanities Washington once again to provide a free multimedia lecture and discussion at Scarecrow's Screening Room.

Most people remember Atticus Finch from their high school English class: he's the heroic lawyer defending an unjustly charged African-American man in To Kill a Mockingbird. So when a long-lost draft of this beloved novel was recently published, readers were shocked when Atticus expressed sympathy for white supremacists - a change that made for front page news. Using Finch as a starting point, UW English Professor Michelle Liu invites participants to think about how fiction, beyond its heroes, can help us build more empathy and openness to those with experiences different from our own.

WHAT: 'The End of Atticus Finch?' lecture and discussion by professor and Humanities Washington speaker Michelle Liu.

WHEN: January 17 @ 7pm - Seating begins at 6:30pm, and is limited, so arrive a bit early to grab one.

WHERE: The Screening Room at Scarecrow Video, 5030 Roosevelt Way NE in Seattle's U-District.


As with literature, storytelling is at the heart of film's ability to inspire empathy. Over a hundred years ago, we began using film to tell our cultural stories. Scarecrow Video is devoted to gathering and sharing as many of these cinematic stories as possible. With its vast collection of 132,000 titles, Scarecrow is one of the most important video libraries in the world. Scarecrow Video became a non-profit in 2014 to continue the founding vision of uniting people through film, and just celebrated its 30th anniversary as an institution and landmark. But, much like public radio and television, Scarecrow Video will not be able to continue without the support of its community. Find out how you can help.

Nearly every night Scarecrow offers free films, lectures, and unique programming in The Screening Room. The space is also available to non-profits and community groups, all in an effort to build communities around our shared love of film. Providing a physical space for all to convene around film arts and culture is just one way that Scarecrow gives back to the community. Other free programs in which Scarecrow fosters community through film include:

Children's Hour - Using short videos from the Scarecrow archive, storybooks curated by the Seattle Public Library, and interactive activities centered on a theme, Children's Hour offers auditory, visual, and tactile learning in a fun environment - all at no cost to families.

Silver Screeners - Scarecrow partners with Seattle senior and community centers to deliver film screenings and discussions for older adults who might otherwise be unable to access films from the collection.

Movies in the Park - In partnership with Magnuson Park Community Center, City of Seattle Office of Arts and Culture, and Seattle Parks and Recreation, Scarecrow hosted free, family-friendly movie nights. Hundreds of attendees explored other cultures through four unique, family-friendly films and children's activities without needing to leave Seattle.
