Bronx Museum First Fridays! Screening of “They Are We”
The Bronx Museum, in collaboration with the African Film Festival and Asho Productions, as part of the UN Remembrance program of the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade, presents a screening of “They Are We” at Joyce Kilmer Park. The film documents a group of Afro-Cubans visiting their ancestral home in Sierra Leone, approximately 170 years after their family was divided by the Transatlantic slave trade. The event will run from 6 to 11pm and will also feature live music by DJ Asho and a performance by The Miguelo Valdés Project. It’s hot out, but it’s never too hot for movies in the park.
