Ypsilanti District Library Film Series

Black Is… Black Ain’t is one of the most important documentaries about The Black Experience ever made. Really. Marlon Riggs, the director, addresses issues that the community doesn’t always address sexism, patriarchy, homophobia, colorism and of course, the church.  He aptly uses gumbo as a metaphor for the rich diversity of Black identities.

Join us at The Michigan Ave branch of the Ypsilanti District Library this Saturday the 16th of November at 1 PM.

Understanding Race Film Series

Join us at the YDL-Michigan Ave on Saturday October 19th at 1 PM for our next presentation.

"Free Angela and All Political Prisoners" is a documentary by Shola Lynch (who also directed “Chisholm ’72: Unbought and Unbossed”)

Angela Davis is an activist in the true sense of the word. This has been displayed in her written works, her teaching, and her actions.  Her outspokenness caught the attention of Ronald Reagan and J. Edgar Hoover and set the stage for an incident that resulted in a trial (and acquittal) of suspected involvement in the Soledad Brothers’ August 1970 abduction and murder of Judge Harold Haley.
