Community Cinema and KPCC partnered to bring you More Than a Month
, an amusing and thought-provoking documentary that follows filmmaker Shukree Hassan Tilghman
’s cross-country campaign to do away with Black History Month.
The Crawford Family Forum hosted a screening of the film on Tuesday, February 7, 2012 followed by a moderated conversation with Tilghman and Larry Earl
(executive director, Mayme A. Clayton Museum & Library) exploring what the treatment of history tells us about race and power in contemporary America.
PBS SoCal will broadcast More Than A Month
on February 23rd. Check out PBS SoCal
