Shukree Hassan Tilghman, a 29-year-old African American filmmaker, is on a cross-country campaign to end Black History Month. Through this tongue-in-cheek journey, More Than a Monthinvestigates what the treatment of history tells us about race and equality in a “post-racial” America.
The Independent Television Service (ITVS), KOCE-TV (PBS) and Soka University of America are pleased to announce the third year of the Community Cinema series, which begins in September 2011. The largest public interest outreach program in public or commercial television, Community Cinema features a sneak peek of nine documentaries set to broadcast on the award-winning PBS series Independent Lens. Community Cinema, in partnership with the Humanities Program and Student Affairs, screens films monthly from September through May.
After the screenings, Community Cinema features panel discussions with leading community based organizations, special guest speakers, information, resources, and other programming designed to help our students and our community learn more about the issues and get involved. The panel for this film will include Jared Sexton, an Associate Professor of African American Studies and Film and Media Studies at the University of California, Irvine.
