As westerners revel in designer lattes and cappuccinos, impoverished Ethiopian coffee growers suffer the bitter taste of injustice. In this eye-opening expose of the multi-billion dollar industry, Black Gold traces one man's fight for a fair price. Associate Professor of Environmental Studies, Alison Ormsby, will introduce the film and the issues of drinking coffee.
