The Black Arts & Cultural Center believes engaging arts, culture and history are critical to a strong community. Our monthly film screenings and talk backs are a great way to do just that! To assist with continuing to provide these art and culture experiences, we are asking for a $5 suggested donation. Light refreshments will be provided. Join us this fall!
