Philadelphia and Chicago screenings of BaddDDD Sonia Sanchez

Posted by Goldwater, Attie, Gordon (Creator)

Summer is heating up and so is our roll out of BaddDDD Sonia Sanchez. There are lots of screenings in the works, but here are some we can share now with our Kickstarter supporters.

PHILADELPHIA: Saturday, August 1, 6 pm BlackStar Film Festival, International House

CHICAGO: Tues, August 11, 8:15 pm, and Wed August 12 , 6:15 pm Black Harvest Film Festival, Siskel Film Center

Barbara, Janet and Sabrina are all planning to attend the Philadelphia premiere August 1, so if you come, make sure to say hi--we want to meet our supporters who we don't know (and of course we love seeing the ones we already do)! Tickets should be available soon through International House website.

As for Chicago--one of our favorite cities--unfortunately we won't be there. But Chicagoan Haki Madhubuti, a friend and colleague of Sanchez's since the birth of the Black Arts Movement in the 60s, will be a featured guest.

More news and more cities to come soon!
