Come and celebrate Black History Month with a movie screening at the Music Library!

Cabin in the Sky was one of six films released from 1927-1954 that featured an all-black cast. It is a folkloric “parable of Southern Negro life” (Green, 195, p. 111) that was controversial during a time when there were increasing demands for better treatment of African-Americans in Hollywood’s film industry. Featuring Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington and His Orchestra, this 1943 black and white film will be an interesting examination of a time in America’s racial history.

Our screening will take place on Friday, February 28th at 3pm. Some refreshments will be provided.
