Join us and NewFM for a free community screening and panel discussion of the refreshing and incisive documentary HORROR NOIRE which traces the history of Black Americans in Hollywood within the horror genre.

Horror Noire provides a critical look at a century of films that by turns caricatured, exploited, sidelined, and eventually embraced Black culture — from the silent era through to early genre cinema, blaxploitation, urban horror, and the horror renaissance signaled in the late 2010s by films like Get Out. The film features a wealth of interview subjects, including filmmakers Jordan Peele, Ernest Dickerson, Tina Mabry, Rusty Cundieff, and William Crain; actors Tony Todd, Keith David, Loretta Devine, and Rachel True; and writer Tananarive Due.
