The Theme for the February 19th, 2022, event again is “A Celebration of Black History Through Motion Picture.” The event will take place at 2 pm and 5 pm at the State Theatre in downtown Bay City.

This years’ event will highlight and feature two iconic movies that portray two pivotal moments in Black History and American History! Marshall and the Red Tails. One detailing a Champion of Civil Rights and the other highlighting the brave heroics of a special class of airmen in their Crusader and Fight for Freedom.

The Public Is invited to attend this entertaining family friendly celebration. Admission is free with the donation of a non-perishable food item to be donated to local area food pantries.!  Seating is limited. Mask are required for your health and safety. The Popcorn and soda are on us compliments of the Bay area Community Foundation who support the Arts and Black History.

“Continuing the theme that we started before we were struck by COVID, we would like reintroduce our Black History Month Movie Matinee. The goal is to bring people of all backgrounds and walks of life, young and old together to educate us all on American history and the struggles of African Americans through Motion Picture.  We hope that you will come out and join us”, Said NAACP Committee Chairperson and Event Planner, Ali Smith,

“Our organization came up with this idea that you can learn a lot about history though motion picture and be enlightened and entertained while doing so! So, we encourage parents to bring their children. We also invite the whole community to come out and share in on this wonderful free event and the experience in learning about pivotal moments in Black history and American history on the big screen. Rating appropriate of course.  I think we will all learn something from both movies which captures two great American Icons of the Civil Rights and Freedom Movements Thurgood Marshall and the legendary Tuskegee Airmen…. And by the way the popcorn and pop are on us! Said Darold Newton President of the Bay City Branch. (Seating is limited and is general admission.) All we ask is you please wear a mask for your safety and the safety of others due to the close quarters and to enjoy yourselves! Said NAACP president, Darold Newton
