Black History Month Film – Special Screening of Till

Come join us for a special showing of Till at the New Earswick Folk Hall, in celebration of Black History Month and it’s theme this year of Saluting our Sisters.

Till is a profoundly emotional and cinematic film about the true story of Mamie Till Mobley’s relentless pursuit of justice for her 14 year old son, Emmett Till, who, in 1955, was lynched while visiting his cousins in Mississippi. In Mamie’s poignant journey of grief turned to action, we see the universal power of a mother’s ability to change the world.

Till is directed by Chinonye Chukwu and written by Michael Reilly, Keith Beauchamp, and Chukwu, and produced by Beauchamp, Reilly, and Whoopi Goldberg.The film stars Danielle Deadwyler as Mamie and Jalyn Hall as Emmett.

Supported by funding from Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust and Joseph Rowntree Foundation, we will also be joined by York Racial Equality Network (YREN) for a talk before the film.

Enjoy this beautiful film among friends in our relaxed and beautiful hall, created by Joseph Rowntree to bring communities together under one roof. As well as music and a licensed bar, we have table seating and an interval so you can make your cinema trip a social one.

Tickets are only £5 including a Chicago style hotdog for you to enjoy during the film – See Eventbrite tickets for options.
