The Classic Black Cinema Series - Boycott


ABOUT THIS EVENT About The Film (2001) Starring Jeffery Wright and Terrence Howard, Boycott tells the story of a pivotal time in the history of a young republic still bleeding from civil war. The famous mid-1950s bus boycott of Montgomery which launched the modern American civil rights movement is presented with restraint and an obvious commitment to truth over drama. About The Classic Black Cinema Series The film series is designed as a vehicle to expose the community to the vast artistic value black film has had throughout the years. The goal is to appeal to as diverse a population as possible and further the appreciation of Black cinema. Curator and host, Felix Curtis, came to Charlotte from the Oakland/San Francisco Bay area where he curated The San Francisco Black Film Festival and Black Filmworks, the annual film festival component of the Black Filmmakers Hall of Fame, where he later served as Executive Director.
