Event description

Description

This December, First Friday Film Series is hosting a screening of We are Superman. Kansas City has suffered from hyper-segregation for over 60 years. We Are Superman chronicles the story of Troost Avenue, which lies in the heart of KC. Troost draws a geographic line between black and white, rich and poor. A growing movement unites to transform Troost from a dividing line into a gathering place. On the corner of 31st Street and Troost Avenue, a community of people are battling against prejudicial legislation, exploitative corporations, and a stereotype that has stigmatized the urban core since the suburban revolution. This is the story of their work, their vision, and how they are no longer waiting for a Superman to save them.

Fall First Friday Film Series are:
October 6 -- Citizen Jane: Battle for the City
November 3 -- Paper Tigers
December 1 -- We Are Superman
