Film fans are invited to join us for a Black History Month viewing of this classic film, written and directed by acclaimed photographer Gordon Parks. The film, based on Parks' semi-autobiographical novel, follows a year in the life of Newt Winger, an African American teenager in a small Kansas town in the 1920s, as he learns about love, fear, violent racial injustice and –during an emotional murder trail–his own capacity for honor.
