RBFS Presents African American Film Festival

The third annual Rehoboth Beach African-American Film Festival (February 14-16) will celebrate the trailblazing work of black artists in shaping American culture, while taking an unflinching look at the indignities and roadblocks designed to silence their voices. It will expose the violence still perpetuated against black communities and show a hopeful way forward through justice and reconciliation. From the ivied lecture halls of academia--where the still-powerful voices of James Baldwin and Zora Neale Hurston ring out--to the sunny shores of Mexico; from the small town South to the boards of ballet stages across the country; viewers will have the rare opportunity to experience worlds and viewpoints not often shown on screen. Recognizing that these films are thought-provoking, after each screening an audience discussion will be led by members of the festivalā€™s selection committee. We hope that you will stay and share your thoughts.
