ITVS Cinema: More Than A Month

Itvsfebruary 01

Every month, the Wilkinson Public Library hosts a free screening of a film that has yet to be released. This month we are honoring Black History Month with the film, "More Than A Month." Shukree Hassan Tilghman, a 29-year-old African-American filmmaker, sets out on a cross-country campaign to end Black History Month. He stops in various cities, wearing a sandwich board, to solicit signatures on his petition to end the observance. He explains that relegating Black History Month to the coldest, shortest month of the year is an insult, and that black history is not separate from American history. Through this thoughtful and humorous journey, he explores what the treatment of history tells us about race and equality in a “post-racial” America. Come watch this free film and join the discussion on Wednesday, Feb. 15 at 6PM.
