Upcoming Events at Local Schools

The Park School invites you to join us for our third film of the 2017-2018 Cultural Diversity Film & Discussion Series on Friday, January 19 at 7pm. Free and open to the public. Discussion will follow the screening.

I Am Not Your Negro

Master filmmaker Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished, Remember This House. The result is a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using Baldwin’s original words and flood of rich archival material. I Am Not Your Negro is a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter. It is a film that questions black representation in Hollywood and beyond. And, ultimately, by confronting the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr., the film challenges the very definition of what America stands for.
