Black History Month Movie Night

  • February 22, 2014 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

In celebration of Black history month I will like to invite you to a day of great movies and pizza. Although we should be celebrating black history throughout the year this month make it a great opportunity to pull out those movies we enjoyed recently and years ago and enjoy them once again. However, this time on a slightly bigger screen than the television. This would be a great opportunity to meet the organizers and the leads of the Little Black Village Culture Club and other members. You are welcome to come early and enjoy Karaoke or perhaps some spoken words. Below is a list of suggested movie so if you do plan to come please make your movie suggestions on the comment section or pick one of the movies from the list below. We will try to watch about two to three movies. Everyone is welcome to stay for one or all three movies. I will provide pizza and popcorn but everyone is welcome to bring snacks as well!

    I have to say we have the Best Meet Up!
    I am a movie person. That Movie room is an Oasis. I have always loved movies and I want to clone Leslie's.
    I appreciate our group. We are collectively Real people in the struggle of Life United for a common cause. Leslie is a treasure. I know his heart is most generous. Peace to all who came and shared their wonderful spirit.

    A great evening meeting new members, food, movies, and discussions on some very eye opening topics! Really got to know each other on a more deeper level due to our own personal experiences relating to the movies we watched. The disagreements, but also the love LOL!

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who was able to make it to the movie night last night! You were all such great company and I enjoyed every minute of it. We even had a great discussion after "Fruitvale Station" which I hope we have more of in our communities and before that we had spoken words! It was a really Great Night and Morning. Can't wait to hang with you guys and gals again!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
