BBB Presents: Tongues Untied - 30 Yrs Later... What's Different?

  • LGBT Detroit 20021 Greenfield Road Detroit, MI, 48235 United States (map)

The Black Bear Brotherhood of Detroit presents "Tongues Untied: 30 Years Later...What's Different?" as part of the Counter Narrative Project's National Day of Action, in partnership with LGBT Detroit, Adodi Detroit, and Onyx Great Lakes. This film screening, intergenerational dialogue, and community mobilization event celebrates the 30th anniversary of filmmaker Marlon Riggs' historic black gay documentary "Tongues Untied" and asks the hard question: what has changed for BGM in the last 30 years since this cultural-political time capsule of black gay life first aired on PBS all those decades ago? And, better still, how are we shaping the next 30 in the way we want it to go for our community? Join us for this free community event. Limited seating available, so register early!
