Norman Studios Presents "Race Film: A Voice of Hope Against Discrimination"

Norman Studios screens The Flying Ace at MOSH, hosts 2 day anti-discrimination event
In cooperation with the Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect, and as a follow up to the recent MOSH exhibit, Anne Frank: Voices of Hope, the Norman Studios hosts a two-day event, Race Film: A Voice of Hope Against Discrimination. Via graphic design displays, films and two keynote speakers, we’ll illustrate how casual discrimination and stereotyping can lead to racial and religious persecution, if not opposed vigorously.
Held at the Norman Studios property in historic Old Arlington, where late silent filmmaker helped to break racial barriers in the film industry a century ago, Race Film: A Voice of Hope Against Discrimination runs Feb. 25-26, noon-4pm. The property is located at 6337 Arlington Road, with entry at the gate on Westdale Drive.

Einstein and Dubois: Crossing the Color Line
Mr. Hemann will use visual images to demonstrate the inspirational connections between Albert Einstein and W.E.B. Dubois, two giants of history who fought tirelessly against racism.
Frank Goodin
UNF Professor and Emmy Award-Winning Filmmaker 
The Deafening Silence of
Century-Old Race Film
Mr. Goodin’s interactive program will examine the power and impact of America’s Race Film era, and how Jacksonville can use the lessons of that era to lead a modern cultural renaissance. He encourages audience interaction.

Refreshments are available via The Blu Claw Food Truck and Not Your
