Black Film Festival: Place, Belonging and Ownership

Saturday, February 17, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm MST

Nearly everyone wants a place to belong to, a center where there is an opportunity to build and grow. The Tucson Black Film Club addresses the issue of Place, Belonging and Ownership at it upcoming Black Film Festival to be held Saturday, February 17, 2018, 11-5 p.m. at the Dunbar Cultural Center. A panel of experts will discuss gentrification and segregation in Tucson and on a national level as it screens Rosewood, the 1997 American historical fiction drama film directed by John Singleton. Based on a true story, it depicts the storming of a black town by a lynch mob and the town’s destruction. Home ownership during the eras of segregation and contemporary gentrification, both in Tucson and nationally will take a primary focus. The festival also includes an excerpt from the only documentary about Blacks in Arizona. A lively discussion will follow the screenings.

There is no charge for screenings and everyone is welcome. Light refreshments will be served. Contact Debi Chess Mabie at (847) 312-9982 for more information.
