Black History Studies Community Cinema – Engaging the Community Through Film

Thursday 18th August 2016

Through our Community Cinema Programme, Black History Studies showcases thought-provoking and educational films and documentaries on various topics on Black History and Black Studies.

We provide an exceptional service to the public by bringing people together to watch the very best in independent film that is rarely shown in the UK and at a price that is affordable for most.

We show a range of films to suit all tastes and ages along with a number of special events throughout the year. Each film is followed by a discussion or question and answer session. By igniting conversations around issues that affect us all, our Community Cinema helps to bring community cohesion and solutions.

Sign up to our mailing list and to get advance notice of our films. We will only ever send you information about forthcoming films or events and we won’t pass your details on to anyone else.

If you would like to screen your short or feature film at Black History Studies’ Community Cinema, email info@blackhistorystudies.com.

GENERATION ONE:
THE SEARCH FOR BLACK WEALTH

Thursday 18th August 2016

Generation One is a Call to Action to Build Black Wealth.

Generation One: The Search for Black Wealth (2015) brings together top financial minds in the African American community to map out a blueprint for wealth creation among Black people.

With the 2007 recession, the housing crisis and soaring unemployment rates leaving Black America’s wallet trapped in the crosshairs of the United States’ financial crisis, the lack of generational wealth in the African American community has never been in sharper focus.

Generation One takes a hard look at the numbers, giving historical context to early wealth creation in the Black community and tapping the expertise of the nation’s top financial experts to weigh in not only on how Blacks fell behind, but surefire strategies families can implement to begin building a strong financial legacy for generations to come.

After the screening, there will be a discussion and Q&A.

An event for all the family!
