Please join me for my 18th annual FREE Valentine’s Day Movie for 49th Ward families. The free movie will be shown this Saturday, February 9th, 10 a.m., at the Village North Theater, 6746 N. Sheridan Road.
This year’s movie will be the Great Debaters, a film based on the real-life experience of an all-African American college debate team in 1930s Texas that successfully trounced all the white colleges they encountered. In the film version, they rise in the ranks until they’re finally allowed to take on Harvard’s debate team. The film stars Denzel Washington as the debate coach.
Free candy will be distributed following the movie.
Seating is limited, so please arrive early to guarantee yourself a seat.
I look forward to seeing you there!
