On Sunday afternoon, February 1 at 3:00 the Brooklyn Historical Society will begin its celebration of Black History Month with a screening of Brooklyn Boheme:
Narrated and written by Fort Greene resident Nelson George [photo], this feature length film celebrates the vibrant African American artistic community that thrived in Fort Greene and Clinton Hill during the 1980′s and 90′s. Through interviews with some of the legendary artists who called these neighborhoods home, including Spike Lee, Chris Rock, and more, we get an intimate glimpse into an inspiring and dynamic period in Brooklyn’s history.
Screenings of Brooklyn Boheme will continue each Sunday at 3:00 p.m. through February. Admission is free with Museum admission ($10 adults, $6 seniors 62 and over, free for students with ID, and free for BHS members).
Bargemusic is taking a winter break, but will be back Thursday, February 26.
