Film Screening: i-3:BLACKOUT and Panel Discussion

The University of Chicago Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy and Practice invites you to join us for a screening of the newly released film, i-3: BLACKOUT, which explores the intersectionality of the identity of being Black, a Black man, and a Black gay man in America. The five guys take you on their journey of self-discovery and how they navigated the influence of family, race, the black community, and religion.

Panel Discussion:

Following the film’s screening, there will be a moderated conversation on the film with the film’s two co-producers, Ladu Pearson and Eugene Robinson, Jr. AM ’09, along with five men featured in the film: Darrick H., Cliff M., Kendall S., Zach M., and Alonzo S.
