Black History Month Celebration: Cooley High

Black History Month Celebration: Cooley High

Presented by Crocker Art Museum at Crocker Art Museum

For the past four years, the Crocker Art Museum has presented a Black History Month Celebration, which has become a major Sacramento event focused on African American history, art, and culture. In 2017, given this unique time of social change and exploration, the Crocker will collaborate with the Sojourner Truth Art Museum, the Sacramento Public Library, and Cine Soul of the Sacramento International Film Festival to present a film and discussion series examining the representation of black males on film. Join in to explore African American history and black perspectives on the big screen. The third film will be Cooley High.

In 1964, a group of high school friends who live on the Near North Side of Chicago enjoy life to the fullest. Then life changes for two of the guys when they meet a pair of career criminals and get falsely arrested in connection with stealing a Cadillac. This film follows their lives through the end of high school and the dramatic end to their school year.

Note: The Crocker will also feature Selma, Shaft, and Get on the Bus.
