(Editor’s Note: A full preview of this event is featured in the April edition of the Riderwood Reporter)
On April 6th and April 13th, the Riderwood Diversity and Inclusion Committee will present a Film Festival centered around the theme of Identity in the Encore Theater at 2pm. Both programs will have discussions afterwards to explore the ramifications of the bicultural experience presented in the films.
On April 6th, the film Bronx Princess will explore the coming of age of a strong-willed and ambitious African American teenage girl whose parents are from the West African country of Ghana.
On April 13th, the film Barack Obama: Made in Hawaii will explore how growing up on the island state helped shape the person and personality of our former President. All residents and staff are welcome to join us for what should prove to be two interesting films and some lively discussions.
