September’s feature film Beloved is an adaptation of Toni Morrison’s novel Beloved. We celebrate the life and legacy of one of history’s most prolific writers, Toni Morrison. The Northwest African American Museum is in continued mourning at the loss of a literary pillar and historically informed architect that both continued and transformed storytelling of the black experience. In this film adaptation of Toni Morrison’s Beloved, the destructive legacy of slavery is examined as it chronicles the life of a black woman named Sethe, from her pre-Civil War days as an enslaved woman in Kentucky to her time in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1873. This film screening is free & open to the Public.
