Free movie at the Newark Museum: SING YOUR SONG

Wednesday, July 24, 7 pm – Newark Museum

SING YOUR SONG
Sing Your Song is an up close look at a great American, Harry Belafonte.  A patriot to the end and a champion for worldwide human rights, Belafonte is one of the truly heroic cultural and political figures of the past 60 years. Told from his own point of view, the film charts his life from a boy born in New York and raised in Jamaica, who returns to Harlem in his early teens where he discovers the American Negro Theater and the magic of performing. (104 minutes)
               
Speakers:  Jason L. Pollard, Film Editor, and Bobby Shepard, Director of Photography

The festival is a showcase for films that focus on the experiences and concerns of contemporary African Americans, as well as an outlet for films about the African-American experience from earlier eras.  The six-week festival is free to the public and provides emerging filmmakers, writers, directors and producers with a high profile outlet for their work.
