Weeksville Watch Nights: I Heard It Through The Grapevine

Sat, Feb 17, 2024 @ 5:00 pm 9:30 pm

Our Weeksville Watch Nights series for February closes out with a screening of the powerful documentary drama, I Heard It Through the Grapevine and deep listening session curated by Alfreda’s Cinema on Feb 17th at 5pm.

The evening kicks off with a specially curated selection of Jazz, Motown, and Blues vinyls, setting the tone to delve into James Baldwin’s transformative journeys from New York to the South, accompanied by light bites.

Following the film, we’re honored to host a thought-provoking discussion with co-director Pat Hartley, alongside Melissa Lyde, Founder of Alfreda’s Cinema, and Erica Harper, VP of Education at Weeksville. Together, we’ll explore the complexities of navigating a “post” civil rights era.

The evening doesn’t end there, be sure to explore our marketplace featuring exclusive merchandise from Alfreda’s Cinema, vinyls from Legacy Dumbo, and a curated selection of Baldwin and Chinua Achebe books available for purchase from Sscarlet’s Web Book Store.

*Proceeds from ticket sales will go towards the building and opening the physical space of Alfreda’s Cinema
