In the 1970s, there were not many Black cinematic works that authentically illustrated the lives of Black women (aside from Ossie Davis’ Black Girl (1972) and the contentious Claudine (1974). Two decades later, Spike Lee revealed the semi-autobiographical CROOKLYN, a vibrant portrait of a school teacher, her stubborn jazz musician husband and their five kids living in Brooklyn in 1973.

While the film was created in 1994, the masterpiece perfectly illustrates Black womanhood from diverse perspectives in 1973. Following the screening, we have a discussion about the film's legacy inspired by Ronald E. Kisner’s article ‘What Films Are Doing to Image of Black Women’ article (Jet Magazine June 29, 1972).

The Johnson Lounge will open to the public at 7:00pm with a concession bar and a special ‘Crooklyn’ curated set featuring the songs from the original soundtrack. Showtime will begin exactly at 7:45pm.
