‘Afraid of Dark’ Film Trailer + Screening
March 18, 2014
Reel Sisters of the Diaspora Film Festival & Lecture Series and Kumble Theater for the Performing Arts at LIU Brooklyn will host the Brooklyn Premiere for Afraid of Dark, directed by Mya B. on Friday, June 13.
With a breakdown of scientific racism, the director examines how black men have been affected by those particular stereotypes throughout history and how the subconscious belief has contributed to violence and the incarceration of black men at disturbing rates. The film offers personal insights from such scholars, historians, and entertainers as Dr. Cornel West, Khalid Muhammad, and Malik Yoba.
