THE TRIALS OF MUHAMMAD ALI

 

Thursday 3rd November 2016

 

 

 

The Trials of Muhammad Ali examines the life of boxer Muhammad Ali outside the ring, beginning with the announcement of his deeply held and controversial Islamic religious beliefs and the decision to change his 'white man's name' of Cassius Clay to Muhammad Ali. Ali refused to serve in the Vietnam War - even after his status as a conscientious objector was denied - on the grounds of protesting racial injustice at home. This documentary explores what made him such a controversial, charismatic and influential figure, not only in the sporting arena, but in world history generally

GENERATION ONE:
THE SEARCH FOR BLACK WEALTH

 


Thursday 18th August 2016

 

 

Generation One is a Call to Action to Build Black Wealth.

 

Generation One: The Search for Black Wealth (2015) brings together top financial minds in the African American community to map out a blueprint for wealth creation among Black people.

With the 2007 recession, the housing crisis and soaring unemployment rates leaving Black America's wallet trapped in the crosshairs of the United States' financial crisis, the lack of generational wealth in the African American community has never been in sharper focus.

Generation One takes a hard look at the numbers, giving historical context to early wealth creation in the Black community and tapping the expertise of the nation's top financial experts to weigh in not only on how Blacks fell behind, but surefire strategies families can implement to begin building a strong financial legacy for generations to come.

After the screening, there will be a discussion and Q&A.

An event for all the family!
