The Medgar Evers Branch of the Jackson-Hinds Library System in Jackson, Mississippi is collaborating with the Conversations Book Club and the Unity Production Foundation (UPF) to host a film screening of “Prince Among Slaves” and a complementing dialogue party to discuss the film and the book of the same name.
The November 1st event will feature UPF’s recently released film, Prince Among Slaves as a means to develop common ground, educate, and serve as a catalyst for improving interfaith relations. Those present will also discuss the book by the same name written by Terry Alford to see how the two relate to our appreciation of history today. (Conversations has chosen the book as the “Book of the Month” for all of its chapters and discussions in the country during November 2008 and is encouraging other book clubs to do the same.)”
We’re always excited to hear of events where community organizations collaborate, and this program shows how different organizations can combine expertise and interests to create a well-rounded experience (e.g., film, book, discussion). If you’re in Jackson, MS, head on over to the Medgar Evers branch on November 1st!
