We’re hosting a day of recent films highlighting exemplary Black joy and achievement. Celebrate cinematic work about Hip Hop, urban fashion, and hustle featuring some of the biggest names in music. A special film tribute to Nichelle Nichols (who famously played Lt. Uhura on Star Trek) details her quest to diversify NASA. Then Willy T. Ribbs, a professional race car driver who was the first Black qualifier in the history of the Indy 500, brings us to the finish line.
Drop by and join our in-person film screenings by taking a seat in the Montalbano Family Theatre on level 8 of the Central Library.
