Members & guests–free with a Netflix subscription. To RSVP, please scroll down. Registered attendees will then receive an email the day before the discussion with a link to join via Zoom.
Watch the film any time before the discussion–or enjoy the discussion and be persuaded to view it after! Tensions and temperatures rise at a Chicago music studio in 1927 when fiery, fearless blues singer Ma Rainey joins her band for a recording session. Framed by a pair of powerhouse performances from Oscar winner Viola Davis and Chadwick Boseman, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom pays affectionate tribute to a blues legend — and Black culture at large. Village member Judith Gethner will host a discussion of the film via Zoom this Saturday at 3:00 PM.
