After oil, coffee is the most actively traded commodity in the world with $80 billion dollars in retail sales. But farmers make as little as three cents for every cup of coffee sold in the U.S. or Europe. Most of the rest of the money goes to the middlemen, especially the four giant food conglomerates which control the coffee market. Black Gold asks us "to wake up and smell the coffee," to face the unjust conditions under which our favorite drink is produced and to decide what we can do about it. Reviewers say that it is "riveting" and "transcends.the dry presentation qualities" of other documentaries. Join like-minded people in a FREE screening of this powerful film. Wednesday, October 17 7:30 PM Michael Servetus Unitarian Society 6565 Oakley Drive NE Fridley, MN 55432 FFI: (763) 571-3596 or email lculbert [at] comcast.net
