Let's talk about movies! Join us for a screening of The Last Black Man in San Francisco (2019, R), directed by Joe Talbot and starring Jimmie Fails. 

Jimmie and his best friend Mont try to reclaim the house built by Jimmie's grandfather, launching them on a poignant odyssey that connects them to their past, even as it tests their friendship and sense of belonging in the place they call home.

"Talbot spins the tale, expanding it to include sharp commentaries about gentrification, home ownership, toxic masculinity and how Black men are supposed to navigate friendship. But at its core, “The Last Black Man in San Francisco” is a bittersweet romance whose protagonist will go to untold lengths to be with his object of affection." -Roger Ebert

After the movie we'll have time for a discussion and the group will select what to watch next month. There will be popcorn and snacks!
