Please join us for Flicks February art film. This month we will show The Harlem Renaissance chronicling that era in music. This retrospective documentary tracks the origins of the soulful music of the period, along with the challenges many of the genre's artists faced when trying to gain recognition within conventional society. Included are anecdotes from musicians and historians, plus footage of performances and interviews with Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington, Count Basie and more.

Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Fats Waller, Bill "Bojangles" Robinson, Dorothy Dandridge, The Mills Brothers, Dizzy Gillespie, Sidney Bechet, Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong, Tiny Grimes, Lena Horne

The movie starts promptly at 7pm in the Community Room of the Carpenteria Library. As usual, we appreciate a $5.00 donation. Enjoy snacks and beverages.
