***NO CHARGE, NO RESERVATIONS NECESSARY, LIMITED SEATING ARRIVE EARLY***

Film Director, Darnley R. Hodge Jr. is an award winning photojournalist and filmmaker with more than twenty years of broadcast and production experience. He holds an M.A. in Producing for Film, Video, and Television from American University and a B.S. in Mass Communications from Virginia Commonwealth University. As his career took him to more than 20 countries on five continents, Darnley witnessed first hand how the scourge of racism plagues the planet. He saw for himself how the darker skinned members of every society he visited, including the United States, suffered from disproportionate levels of poverty, discrimination and marginalization. In the wake of several extrajudicial killings of unarmed black men in the United States, Darnley became dissatisfied with the manner in which these events were being covered on many of the mainstream media outlets and he wanted to use his media access and news experience to address the issue on screen in a more meaningful way. His latest film, The American LOWS, is the result.
