Join Dean Ernest J. Wilson III for a screening of the landmark 1968 documentary Black on Black, produced by journalism professor Joe Saltzman.
The program will include a discussion led by University Professor Geoffrey Cowan on how conditions have changed for African Americans in the 40 years since the premiere of this documentary, which was hailed for its pioneering effort to capture the voices and experiences of black America during one of the most volatile times in the nation\'s history.
