In celebration of the upcoming Spike Lee tribute, we proudly present Brooklyn Boheme. Nelson George explores the fertile ground of Fort Greene in Brooklyn, which gave rise to an African-American arts movement in the late 20th century as vibrant as the Harlem Renaissance. George teams with filmmaker Diane Paragas to interview such luminaries as Spike Lee, Chris Rock, Branford Marsalis, Rosie Perez, Saul Williams, and Lorna Simpson for a lively celebration of Brooklyn pride.
Following the film, join us for a spirited discussion with our own community of emerging and established Baltimore African American artists and community leaders Don Palmer, Rain Pryor, Farajii Muhammad, Grasshopper, Rosiland Cauthen and Jimmy Wilson. 7:30pm. $12, $7 mbrs, stus.
