The Tucson Black Film Club presents: Native Son

“This classic 1951 film is the first time Richard Wright’s novel was put on the silver screen.  The book was said to be “one of the most important books ever written about racism and the black experience in America.”  Shot in Argentina, this first film version follows the life of Bigger Thomas, living in 1930s Chicago.   An accidental killing places Bigger in an impossible situation, tragic decisions and examines liberalism and its limitations.  A lively discussion will follow the screenings.  There is no charge for screenings and everyone is welcome.  Light refreshments will be served.”
