In collaboration with the National Black Programming Consortium (NBPC), Firelight Media and Columbia University's Institute for Research in African-American Studies (IRAAS), the Schomburg is proud to premiere More than a Month, a provocative new film by African-American filmmaker Shukree Tilghman making his New York debut.
Through a challenging, complex, and often comedic journey, More than a Month explores what the treatment of history tells us about race and equality in “post-racial” America.
After the screening, the audience is invited to join media personality Amanda Seales as she leads a conversation with Shukree Hassan Tilghman, Schomburg Director Khalil Gibran Muhammad, and filmmaker Sharon LaCruise (Daisy Bates: First Lady of Little Rock) about the issues the films invites us all to consider. The exciting discussion will be streamed live on Facebook!
This program is free and open to the public. For registration, go to www.schomburgcenter.eventbrite.com or call (212) 491-2040.
More than a Month is funded in part by NBPC and supported through the Firelight Media Producers' Lab, and will air on PBS on February 16, 2012.
