In collaboration with the Society of Black Alumni (SOBA), Join fellow alumni and friends at Baltimore's Charles Theater for an exclusive screening of American Fiction, 2023 Winner of the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto International Film Festival.
American Fiction is Cord Jefferson’s hilarious directorial debut, which confronts our culture’s obsession with reducing people to outrageous stereotypes. Jeffrey Wright stars as Monk, a frustrated novelist who’s fed up with the establishment profiting from “Black” entertainment that relies on tired and offensive tropes. To prove his point, Monk uses a pen name to write an outlandish “Black” book of his own, a book that propels him to the heart of hypocrisy and the madness he claims to disdain. Space is limited.
