Our Black History Month series is a celebration of black directors. Join us each week in February as we feature work from a different contemporary black director followed by a post-screening discussion on the best in black cinema led by some of our community’s brightest stars.
When Ava DuVernay’s SELMA debuted in 2014, it garnered such nominations as Golden Globes Best Director (the first for a black female director), Best Picture and Academy Awards Best Picture. Her film chronicles Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s campaign to secure equal voting rights through an epic march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, in 1965.
Presented by the Caddo Parish Commission and Centenary College of Louisiana's Centenary Film Society and coordinated in partnership with Shreveport Urban Film Festival.
