Celebrating LGBT pride on Third Thursday!

6-8PM: A Luv Tale and Talk Back with producer Sidra Smith
In honor of LGBT Pride Month, the Museum is screening A Luv Tale (45 mins), a film that focuses on two women—a lesbian photographer and her straight editorwho are lucky enough to find each other in the emotional traffic jam of life. With humor and passion, the women ask the question: How far will you go to follow your heart? Written, directed and produced in 1999 by Sidra Smith, whose current project, A Luv Tale: The Series, examines love and friendship between four beautiful, successful and sophisticated lesbians navigating their complex lives through a world of art, music, fashion and politics.

Sidra Smith received an NAACP Image Award for producing the documentary Free Angela & All Political Prisoners, an examination of the life and times of civil rights activist Angela Davis and executive produced by Will Smith, Jada PinkettSmith and JayZ.

This is far more than a review of one of basketball’s greatest teamsinspiring story; it is, at heart, a stirring recreation of a time and place when the NBA championships defined the national dream.
