The Beach Institute and Unity in the Community welcome you to join us on Friday, May 31st at 6:30 PM to celebrate famed director John Singleton (January 6, 1968 – April 28, 2019) with a free screening of his best known film “Boyz N The Hood”.
This groundbreaking film gave a voice to the Black experience in America. Singleton was the first African-American to be nominated for an Academy Award as Best Director, as well as the youngest nominee at 24. Unfortunately, in April he passed due to complications related to high blood pressure.
Stay with us after the screening for a conversation about its impact on the African-American community, Mr. Singleton’s legacy, and hypertension.
