Alameda Students Sponsor “More Than a Month” Film Screening


High students in Alameda will be showing and discussing a provocative documentary, “More Than a Month,” in which a young man travels across the country, examining what Black History means in “Post-Racial” America.
The event will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 27 from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. at Ruby Bridges Elementary School, 351 Jack London Ave. in Alameda and is sponsored by the Black Student Unions at Encinal and Alameda High Schools, along with their peers from Island High School and the Alameda Multicultural Community Center.
Following the showing  of the award-winning film by African American filmmaker Shukree Tilghman, a panel of local high school students, educators and community members hold  a discussion with the audience, moderated by Rick Moss, chief curator and director of the African American Museum and Library in Oakland.
Students will also present Profiles of History, biographies of game-changers who have impacted both Black and American history.
