Greetings SSCC Family and Friends!
As we prepare to celebrate Black History Month, we are announcing a new venture! This year, we will be hosting “Our History in Cinema”. This month-long celebration honors the contributions of African American film makers, producers, and performers. We have a very long history of making films starting with the silent era of films to today’s high-tech wonders! A calendar of films is appears below.
It is not possible to list all the films that have been produced by Black film makers. We have tried to give a good sampling of different genres and time periods. The films range from comedies to documentaries and to dramas.
The films range from the 1920’s to 2021. Each day of February, there are 2 films suggested for your viewing. Watch them at your leisure. The links are included and if you click the link, it will take you to the film. Be advised, cable or streaming services may be required to view some films.
Please be aware that most of these films are at least PG-13 and above. There are also a few family films that can be enjoyed together. Parents, please use discretion while selecting films for your family.
Each Saturday in February at 12 noon, we will have a discussion time of one movie. These discussions will be facilitated by Brother Jeff and Sister Tama Hamilton-Wray. Please view the film and submit any questions you might have before discussion time to email@example.com.
We are so very excited to have you join us during this event! If you have any questions, please contact Rev. Sameerah.
