*Baobab Presents...*

*Fifty years ago the Black Arts Movement addressed the political climate of
the United States through film, music, poetry, theater, and visual
expression.  In the coming weeks we will explore how this movement,
following the Civil Rights Era, presented a different American perspective.*

THE COOL WORLD

*Friday, February 17th 7:00 PM*

U.S. film. The Cool World is filmed in a gritty, semi-documentary style
that forces the viewer become a witness to the dreadfulness of slum life in
the ghettos of Harlem-a life that is made up of teenage gangs, drugs,
prostitutes, violence, despair, and a sense of hopelessness due to racial
prejudices.  With an incredible jazz score by Dizzy Gillespie and his
quintet setting the tone, we follow the film's main character Duke, a
teenager who has dreams of starting his own gang. Discussion will follow.
