Film: More Than A Month

February 12, 2012 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

film logoShukree Hassan Tilghman’s More Than a Month follows Tilghman, as he embarks on a cross-country campaign to end Black History Month. More Than a Month examines what the treatment of history tells us about race and power in contemporary America.

At its core, More Than a Month is about what it means to be an American, to fight for one’s rightful place in the American landscape, however unconventional the means, even at the risk of ridicule or misunderstanding. In that way, it is about the universal endeavor to discover one’s self. The film asks the questions: How do we justify teaching American history as somehow separate from African American history? What does it mean that we have a Black History Month? What would it mean if we didn’t?

Film with response/review presented by DC Youth Slam Poetry Team.

Post screening speakers TBA. All Community Cinema screenings are FREE but please reserve seats or get more information here or call 202-939-0794
