My People Film Series – Out In The Night
Presented by Kelly Strayhorn Theater
“This impassioned social issue documentary serves as a strong indictment of tabloid journalism and a prejudicial legal system.”
Now in its sixth season, My People: A Film Series in Color explores the lives and experiences of LGBTQ people of color with award-winning films, performances, and discussion. Inspired by Billy Strayhorn’s life, My People connects the rich history and contributions made by generations of LGBTQ people of color.
Out In The Night :: Under the neon lights in a gay-friendly neighborhood of New York City, four young African-American lesbians are violently and sexually threatened by a man on the street.
