BAVC: Focus Locus presents They Can’t Take That Away: The Legacy of the Fillmore
September 23 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Focus Locus is thrilled to present They Can’t Take That Away: The Legacy of the Fillmore. Join us for a screening and livestreamed talk back with producer/director Lubna Takruri from SF Commons, and co-author of “Harlem of the West” Elizabeth Pepin Silva.
Be transported to the heyday of the vibrant African-American jazz scene in San Francisco’s Fillmore district in the 1940s and 50s, and the city’s misguided redevelopment efforts that wiped the neighborhood away. You’ll see rare archival photos from the era’s bustling streets and nightclubs, and hear from local characters who share their memories, as well as city officials who are asked what it will take to keep artists of color thriving in the city today.
Will stream live on NOM’s Facebook page, Youtube, Twitch, and local channel 12!
