Within Our Gates (1920)

June 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$7

Come to watch this groundbreaking film for Juneteenth! Created as a direct rebuttal to DW Griffith’s Birth of a Nation, this silent film includes an African-American cast and crew.

In this early silent film from pioneering director Oscar Micheaux, kindly Sylvia Landry (Flo Clements) takes a fundraising trip to Boston in hopes of collecting $5,000 to keep a Southern school for impoverished Black children open to the public. She then meets the warmhearted Dr. Vivian (William Smith), who falls in love with Sylvia and travels with her back to the South. There, Dr. Vivian learns about Sylvia’s shocking, tragic past and realizes that racism has changed her life forever.
