ALEXANDRIA — A free showing of the documentary, “I am a Victim Victor,” will take place at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 21 at Alexandria Technical College.

Kendall Qualls, the film's producer and president of Take Charge Minnesota, will lead a discussion after the film.

Qualls unsuccessfully ran for Congress as a Republican in 2020 and lost the Minnesota Republican primary race for governor earlier this year. He is a U.S. Army veteran and a former health care executive. A Black man, he has stated that he rejects the idea that the U.S. is a racist country.

His 45-minute film starts at the end of the Civil Rights era with the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and tracks two roads taken by Black Americans in the 50 years since. It compares the path of an Afro-centric, secular and political activist journey and the one rooted in the Christian faith that focuses on faith, family and education.

To reserve a seat, search for "I Am A Victim Victor" on EventBrite . Attendees should park in the south parking lot and enter Door L. Follow the hallway to Auditorium 743. No parking permits are required after 4 p.m.
