'Black, White & Blue' is a searing, brutally honest new documentary about race in America, touching on police violence and civil unrest, the Trump presidential campaign, the Black Lives Matter movement, even the Flint water crisis--that will be seen by the public for the first time next month. In Detroit.
Why the Motor City?
"Because Detroit is a preview of what awaits black America," says Curtis Scoon, the film's executive producer, who will arrive in Detroit on Thursday for two days. "It is also ground zero for where the fight to stem the tide begins."
The 76-minute independent film, which has not yet been rated, will be shown at 7 p.m. on February 2, 2018 at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African-American History, located at 315 East Warren Avenue.
The screening is free and open to the public, but those interested in attending must register here.
A second screening is scheduled for February 7 in the Washington, DC-area.
'Black, White & Blue' is the first full-length film by Mr. Scoon, a Washington, DC-based author, screenwriter and founder of Top Of The Food Chain Films. The film's director, Asia Norris, lives in Baltimore and is currently studying electronic media and film at Towson University. 'Black White & Blue' is also her first full-length film.
