Free ‘Black History Month Film Series’ in Claremore!

The Rogers State University Department of Fine Arts will feature award-winning films in February as part of its 2nd Annual Black History Month Film Series

Each film will be screened at 7 p.m. at the Will Rogers Auditorium on the Claremore campus. Admission is free and open to the public.

The Feb. 19 film is Spike Lee’s breakout 1989 film, “Do The Right Thing.” The story is set on the hottest day of the year and explodes on-screen in a vibrant look at a day in the life of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. Featuring a stellar ensemble cast that includes Danny Aiello, Ossie Davis, Ruby Dee, Richard Edson, Giancarlo Esposito, Robin Harris, Samuel L. Jackson, Bill Nunn, Rosie Perez, and John Turturro, Spike Lee’s powerful portrait of urban racial tensions sparked controversy while earning popular and critical praise. This film is rated R.

The Feb. 26 film is the 2017 film “Get Out,” which was hailed as equal parts gripping thrilled and provocative social commentary. The story features on a young African-American man who visits his white girlfriend’s family estate. He subsequently becomes ensnared in the more sinister, real reason for the invitation. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could have never imagined. This film is rated R.
