Show as part of the series Black Parade: A Cinematic Showcase
This series celebrates the beauty and complex intricacies of living while Black, through the power of film. We will explore a cinematic legacy of stories from acclaimed African American and Black filmmakers and artists, venturing into the Black experience in all its richness, diversity, and depth. From joyfully entertaining to stirringly thought-provoking, this series will offer films across various genres and categories. Sometimes we’ll collectively discuss reactions to themes (from our complicated history to the nuanced experiences of Black Americans), in a welcoming and inclusive community space.
At 6PM, on the 4th Wednesday of each month, Chris Ballentine – in collaboration with Zoetropolis – will present a curated film series. We invite you to enjoy a collection of compelling stories, from historical to contemporary, that will offer glimpses into the African-American experience.
