Group offers Black History Movie Nights

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        A Cincinnati-area group hopes to reel in young historians with a free movie and a meal.

        Three Square Music Foundation, a nonprofit organization that operates after-school programs serving hundreds of children in the city, recently started Black History Movie Nights.

        Every Monday, from 5-8 p.m., adults and youth are served a meal with a brief presentation on a topic in black history at a Mount Auburn church.

        At 6 p.m., the projector rolls. The public is invited to attend.

        “We feel that African-American history spans over much more than one month,” said Kimberly Southerland, Three Square's ex ecutive director and chief executive officer.

        “Our series will be an all-inclusive and ongoing project. We want this to be a family event, so we invite parents to come to the movie nights with their children.”

        The movies show at the Church of Our Savior, 65 E. Hollister, Mount Auburn. Cost: free to children already part of Three Square, and $5 per person, including a meal, for others.

        Reservations and information: 731-3227.
