Please bring the significant men in your life for film screenings, a panel discussion with producer Woodie King, Jr., screen writer Richard Wesley, filmmaker Nefertite Nguvu and producer Indira Etwaroo from the Billie Holiday Theatre, and a reception where we can continue the conversations.

On Friday, April 12th, at 6pm we will have a command performance of two films at Cultured Expressions, 1417 Main Street in the Arts District of downtown Rahway, NJ. The two blockbuster films will be Janine Sherman Barrois' French Fries and Tchaiko Omawale's Solace (Solace features Hope Olaide Wilson, Lynn Whitfield, Glynn Turman, Chelsea Tavares, Luke Rampersad and Sydney Bennett (from the music group The Internet), with music composed by Meshell Ndgeocello).
