Join the Chicago South Side Film Festival for our screening of “Cornbread, Earl and Me”.
“Cornbread, Earl and Me” is a vintage dramatic feature film released in 1975. At its center is Nathaniel “Cornbread” Hamilton, who would have become the first man from his community to go to college due to his scholarship-winning athletic ability. One fateful day, the police are on a manhunt for an armed rapist. They mistake Cornbread for the rapist and shoot him dead in the street. In the aftermath of the community’s shattered dream, and in the face of an intimidating police cover-up, his friends and family members are determined not to betray his memory. (95 Minutes, Rated PG)
The film screening will be followed by an engaging and though-provoking conversation between Pemon Rami and a special guest about policing in the Black community.
We look forward to seeing you at our other screenings from September 28th to October 7th.
