Race to the Movies screening of "He Got Game": An unflinching conversation...
Mon, March 27, 2017, 7:00 PM – 10:00 PM EDT
Monday, March 27th: Spike Lee's "He Got Game"
Written and directed by Spike Lee, He Got Game tells the tale of Jesus Shuttlesworth, a top college basketball recruit who the Governor wants attending his alma mater that he release his father from Attica - imprisoned for killing his mother - to make it happen. The film "combines trenchant commentary with Spike Lee's signature visuals" and "bold urban landscapes, larger-than-life characters and red-hot visual pyrotechnics," as the politics of race and power are told through the relationship between one father and his son. Watch the trailer here.
No charge for these events, everyone is welcome but registration is required to reserve your seat (and space is limited). Concession will be open but suggest you grab dinner first. Bonus points for bringing a friend who doesn't look or think like you do. (Bonus points, unfortunately, have no cash value but do make you feel warm and fuzzy... because boy does the world need more friends who don't look or think alike.)
Race to the Movies is part of The Village Square's ongoing Created Equal series, offered in partnership with Leon County and through the support of the John S. Knight Foundation and the Community Foundation of North Florida. It's our hope that movies can open hearts, then open real dialogue across divides in our community.
