Free Movie, “American Fiction” | June 3

Join us June 3 for a free showing of “American Fiction,” the Oscar-winning movie that tells the story of writer Thelonious “Monk” Ellison, whose writing career has stalled because his work isn’t deemed “Black enough.” Monk, a writer and English professor, writes a satirical novel under a pseudonym, aiming to expose the publishing world’s hypocrisies. The book’s immediate success forces him to get deeper enmeshed in his assumed identity and challenges his closely-held worldviews. This movie starts at 6 p.m. and is rated R. Closed captions will be enabled.
