A PRE-SHOW COMMUNITY FILM SCREENING, RECEPTION, & DIALOGUE
Beyond Stereotypes is an innovative, locally-produced short-subject documentary that juxtaposes filmed interviews with young men from diverse and contending backgrounds to address and challenge questions, impressions, and representations of African-American and Latino male identity in America.
Expanding on topics of inclusiveness and belonging that are explored in Los Otros, join us for this short film screening and discussion that spotlights how scholars and young men of color in Maryland are working to validate important aspects of their identities “beyond stereotypes.” We will be joined by project curator and educator Dr. LaMarr D.Shields (CEO, Cambio Group and OSI, Baltimore Community Fellow) and Alexander James (Filmmaker and CEO, Zikhi Productions) with a special performance by hip hop artist Fortune (Baltimore School for the Arts).
This event is free to attend. If you plan on attending, please RSVP to Brian Francoise at firstname.lastname@example.org
