Each month from September through March, watch a different thought-provoking film and engage in community discussion afterward around topics in history that resonate today.
In January, explore the story of one year, one principal, and one heartbreaking setback as a struggling Minneapolis elementary school fights to get off “the list" of underperforming schools. An extraordinarily powerful Northside story featuring Principal Mauri Melander Friestleben, her staff, and the students at Lucy Laney Elementary.
This screening is a part of Black Cinema: Under the Skin, a program of films exploring Black culture and experience. Topical and relevant in these turbulent times, Black Cinema aims to create a space for dialogue and better understanding.
This film series is a partnership between the Minnesota Historical Society, the Film Society of Minneapolis St. Paul, and the Capri Theater. This program is made possible by the Legacy Amendment's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund through the vote of Minnesotans on Nov. 4, 2008.
