Tampa Theatre Night
The Heritage Movie Night features a discussion with Dr. Calvin Morris, the associate director and national coordinator of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference’s Operation Breadbasket (the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition) paired with the viewing of the short film,
“The Barber of Birmingham: Foot Soldier of the Civil Rights Movement”.
The film, a 2012 Oscar nomination, features 85-year-old Mr. Armstrong, an African American barber in Birmingham, Alabama, as he experiences the manifestation of an unimaginable dream: the election of the first African American president. The documentary raises questions about democracy and patriotism in the face of adversity, and the vigilance and action required to ensure continued forward movement to end racial injustice.
$10 for general public; $8 for Tampa Theatre Members
