A Long Long Way: Race And Film – Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner

Friday, February 16, 2018 | 7:00pm

A Long Long Way: Race and Film, 1968-2018 is a 3-part series exploring race and film through two critically acclaimed movies: Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner (1968) and Get Out (2017).  Through Friday and Saturday evening screenings, and a Saturday afternoon panel, scholars, theologians, and film critics explore what each of these films say (and don’t say) about race.  

Now in its 50th anniversary year, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner represents a milestone in American film. Journalist Korva Coleman of NPR moderates a panel discussion exploring the historical context and impact of this film in discussion both before and after the screening.

Speakers:

Korva Coleman, NPR (moderator)
The Rev. Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas, Episcopal Divinity School at Union Theological Seminary
Dr. Greg Garrett, Baylor University
Mr. Vann Newkirk, The Atlantic
