"The understanding of a culture comes from hearing the language, tasting the food, seeing personal interactions, experiencing the traditions, and so much more when it is in context."
— Elizabeth Laval & Candice Pendergrass, Sikh Youth Public History Project
LOS ANGELES—The St. Clair Bourne 4th Tuesdays Community Screening series is a free community monthly documentary film and discussion series, named in honor of the founder of our organization, the late award-winning documentary filmmaker St. Clair Bourne. The St. Clair Bourne 4th Monday Community Screening series serves our mission of advocating and exhibiting high quality films to the African-American community.
See a screening of THE ONE AND ONLY DICK GREGORY directed by Andre Gaines, a feature-length documentary examining activist, pop-culture icon and thought leader Dick Gregory, whose work as a self-described ‘agitator’ shaped a generation demanding justice. As a renowned Black comedian, Gregory had a platform to take on the most incendiary battles of hunger, gender equity, and civil rights—stirring trouble and making headlines in the service of social justice. Featuring Gregory’s personal reflections, archival footage and interviews with the artists he influenced—including Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock and Wanda Sykes.
The event is free.
