African Heritage Movie Night: Queen and Slim
Celebrate African Heritage Month 2020 by going to the movies! Come and see movies that demonstrate examples of empowerment.
This evening’s films will be Queen and Slim.
A criminal defense attorney, Queen, has an awkward dinner with her Tinder date Slim – in an Ohio diner. Slim drives Queen home afterwards; his supposedly erratic driving attracts the attention of a police officer, who pulls the two over and makes Slim step out of the car after not complying with his orders. The agitated and aggressive officer draws his gun on Slim, and when Queen gets out and tries to record the incident on her phone, he shoots at her, grazing her leg. Slim tackles the officer before grabbing his gun and shooting him. Queen tells Slim that they either have to go on the run or will spend the rest of their lives in prison.
Refreshments will be served and there will be a discussion about the movies shown.
