For Black History Month, the Parking Lot of the LGBTQ Center of Southern Nevada Will Turn Into a Drive-in for a Screening of the Critically Acclaimed Film “Antebellum.”
After the Movie, a Live Stream Panel Discussion on Social and Racial Equity Will Happen on Instagram IG. The February 18 screening of “Antebellum” is in collaboration with the City of Las Vegas – Batteries Included Program, Nevada Partners, and The Center. The event is part of The Center’s Qvolution youth programming, a safe space for LGBTQIA2S+ identified youth & allies.
“It’s pretty cool that we can turn The Center’s parking lot into a drive-in,” says AJ Holly Huth, youth services manager at The Center. “It underscores the message that it’s a place where we can learn from one another,” says Huth.
After the movie, a 6-person panel will socially distance inside The Center for a live stream discussion to explore racial tension, social justice issues, the director’s artistic significance and messages, and current and historical struggles for racial justice and equality in America.
The event is free and open to the public, but you must RSVP in advance on Eventbrite.com
Check-in is at 5:30 p.m. for the 6 p.m. screening of “Antebellum.” The panel discussion begins at 8 p.m. and will be streamed virtually at Qvolution on IG
The Center is located at 401 S. Maryland Parkway. Refreshments will be served.
