On Thursday, Oct. 28th the Madam Walker Legacy Center is launching ImageNation’s Cocktails & Sōl Cinema Series with a special screening of the film, “NATIONTIME” – a report on the 1972 National Black Political Convention held in Gary, Indiana.

.

This historic event gathered Black voices from across the political spectrum, among them Jesse Jackson, Dick Gregory, Coretta Scott King, Dr. Betty Shabazz, Isaac Hayes, and more.

.

Narrated by Sidney Poitier and Harry Belafonte, the film was considered too militant for television broadcasts at the time.

.

The event will begin with a reception featuring complimentary cocktails and a live DJ! After the film screening guests will enjoy a talkback featuring national and local leaders.

.

This event is sponsored by Megan Barrow – State Farm and the Central Indiana Community Foundation.
