Reserve Your Seats for the GPB Screening of "More Than A Month"
Shukree Hassan Tilghman, a 29-year-old African-American filmmaker, sets out on a cross-country campaign to end Black History Month.
Through this thoughtful and humorous journey, he explores what the treatment of history tells us about race and equality in a “post-racial” America. Each stop along the journey explores Black History Month as it relates to four ideas: education, history, identity, and commercialism.
More Than a Month is not just about a yearly tradition, or history, or being black in America. It is about what it means to be an American, to fight for one’s rightful place in the American landscape, however unconventional the means, even at the risk of ridicule or misunderstanding. It is a film is about discovering oneself.
GPB's film screening of More Than A Month is FREE and open to the public.
