"BLACK" 

The Parkway Theater, 4818 Chicago Ave., Minneapolis, will hold a public screening of “BLACK”on Feb. 15 at 7:30 p.m.

“BLACK”is a modern‐day Malcolm X story, told through the eyes of a Black man who witnesses

his brother’s murder by police during a routine traffic stop. He responds to the murder by

generating a movement of Black people to fight against systemic oppression and police violence

through community organizing, political policy, and force.

“I would have never written this film, had I not seen Philando Castile take his last breaths right there on camera,” said David Buchanan, the writer and director of “BLACK.”

The film will also include real‐life interviews from individuals who’ve been victims of police brutality. “BLACK” was a part of the Official Selection at the Twin Cities Film Fest and was nominated for Best Picture.

There will be a discussion with the filmmakers following the screening.

Tickets are$9 in advance and $11 at the door. Advance tickets are available at bit.ly/2B6tTZ2. This event is open to the public.
