Food & Film Monthly Screening Series: Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Historic Black Colleges & Universities

The Gary International Black Film Festival and Chicago's Black Cinema House come together in partnership with Stanley Nelson’s film Tell Them We Are Rising at ArtHouse: A Social Kitchen!

ABOUT THE FILM

The story of Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) began before the Civil War and influenced the course of our nation yet remains one of America’s most important untold stories. A haven for Black intellectuals, artists and revolutionaries—and path of promise toward the American dream—Black colleges and universities have educated the architects of freedom movements and cultivated leaders in every field. They have been unapologetically Black for more than 150 years. For the first time ever, their story is told.

Food & Film Monthly Screening Series: THE FITS

ABOUT THE FILM

THE FITS is a psychological portrait of 11-year-old Toni-a tomboy assimilating to a tight-knit dance team in Cincinnati's West End. Enamored by the power and confidence of this strong community of girls, Toni eagerly absorbs routines, masters drills, and even pierces her own ears to fit in. When a mysterious outbreak of fainting spells plagues the team, Toni's desire for acceptance is twisted.

FREE ADMISSION | DONATIONS ACCEPTED. Doors open at 6PM.
