Feb. 7th Screening: AFTER NINES by Robert Coleman
A South African play titled "After Nines", devised and developed for the South African Archives, through theatre workshop techniques used by the likes of Barney Simon and others. It was widely used in 'struggle theatre' (anti-apartheid theater productions) which had the added advantage of not having a written script (hence making it more difficult for the state to ban it). Robert Coleman, who workshopped the production with the actors, used this technique extensively.

March 6th Screening:. Living W/Pride: Ruth Ellis at 100
Appearance at LHA with Director Yvonne Welbon. Living With Pride: Ruth Ellis @ 100 is a one hour documentary about the life and times of Ruth Ellis. Born July 23, 1899, in Springfield, Illinois, at the time of the filming she was the oldest "out" African American lesbian known. In addition to exploring her rich past, the film offers a rare opportunity to experience a century of our history as lived by one inspiring woman. By example, Ruth Ellis shows us what is possible and what can be realized, if one not only lives long and ages well but also lives with pride.
