Kan-Kan Cinema presents “Black in America: The Heritage Series,” featuring films about the Black community’s long struggle against structural racism, its pursuit of equality and the rich cultural life it has created despite barriers. In this installment of the series, the cinema will screen Dream Land: Little Rock’s West 9th Street, which tells the story of a once-thriving Black business and entertainment district in the Arkansas capital, and two short films, Why the US Government Murdered Fred Hampton and Racial Segregation and Concentrated Poverty: The History of Housing in Black America. After the screening, series curator Clayton Hamilton will facilitate a discussion with the audience.
