On Feb. 23, Midwest BSFA will screen Destination: Planet Negro in conjunction with our “What Does the Future Look Like?” programming initiative.
Movie synopsis: “In 1939, African American leaders respond to Jim Crow segregation by building a rocket to colonize Mars. The three person crew blasts off, but time travel instead, arriving in present-day America revealing much about race today.”
In addition to the movie, we will screen entries submitted for our “What Does the Future Look Like” short film program and participants will be able to record video “time capsules” about what they think the future will look like for black Cincinnatians.

Free. Feb. 23, 1-5 p.m., Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, Avondale branch, 3566 Reading Rd., Avondale (Cincinnati 45229).
