BE FREE OR DIE - 100 Black Parents to host community screening of Harriet on Saturday
Spoiler Alert: It’s not Julia Roberts playing the role of the abolitionist freedom fighter, Harriet Tubman.
100 Black Parents, Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, and Island Soul restaurant present a community screening of the movie Harriett this Saturday November 23rd at the Ark lodge Theater in Columbia City. The movie Harriet, chronicles Harriet Tubman's life from her escape from slavery through the dangerous missions she led to liberate hundreds of enslaved people through the Underground Railroad.
According to Chukundi Salisbury, Founder & Executive Director of 100 Black Parents, the idea behind the community screening is to give access to the film to families in the community who might not have the means to see it otherwise.
"We are hosting this screening to provide an opportunity for African American Families to have an intergenerational experience with others while building community. Harriet and movies like it can be a catalyst for deeper educational engagement, but overall we want families to have fun and build memories." - Chukundi Salisbury
Keeping that in mind, ticket prices are only $10.00 and financial assistance is available for those that cannot afford the full ticket price. Community members and the general public who do not plan on attending the screening but want to support the cause can donate towards tickets for those less fortunate.
ALL TICKETS WILL BE AT WILL CALL
