Three Words: Mr. James Baldwin.

We are beyond proud to present a free screening of Barry Jenkins's Oscar-nominated film, If Beale Street Could Talk as part of our Black History is American History Month programming.

On page 42 of James Baldwin's If Beale Street Could Talk, protagonist Tish says, "It's a miracle to realize that somebody loves you." At the center of this film is ♥ love ♥. Beautiful, tragic, enduring, and powerful love. We don't want to give away too much. You'll just have to come to BRIC House and see it for yourself.

Yummy treats served. Immediately following the film, there will be an audience talk back discussion moderated by Brooklyn Free Speech Television's Matthew Allen.

The 2020 leap year has given us a bonus day to celebrate Black History. February 29 only comes around once every four years, let's make this special day count and celebrate the last day of Black History Month together.
