Free Screening + Talk: The Contradictions of Fair Hope
In association with MOBIA and Fordham University, we are screening the award-winning documentary The Contradictions of Fair Hope, which traces the gradual loss of tradition in one of the last remaining African-American benevolent societies. Executive produced by Golden Globe and Emmy winner S. Epatha Merkerson and narrated by Oscar winner Whoopi Goldberg, this gripping film traces the contradictions of progress, black community identity, and economic independence in a rural African-American community.
The FREE screening will be followed by a Q&A with executive producers S. Epatha Merkerson and Rockell Metcalf. Before the screening at Fordham University, there will also be a wine and cheese reception, along with an exhibit tour, at the Museum of Biblical Art.
You must pre-register to attend this program; no walk-ups will be accepted.
