General Event Information

Dates and Times:
April 29, 7:00PM-9:00PM

Join Humanities Washington for two upcoming Think & Drink events: From Birth of a Nation to Smoke Signals: African Americans and American Indians in Film will be held in Greenwood at Naked City Brewery and Taphouse April 29 and in Columbia City at The Royal Room April 30. Both events will ask: What myths about African Americans and American Indians are perpetuated by Hollywood? How have movies shaped cultural identities and stereotypes? And how have American Indian and African American communities responded to cinematic representations of their cultures?

The event at The Royal Room marks an expansion of the popular Think & Drink program to a second Seattle location. This is also the second in Humanities Washington’s 2014 Think & Drink series: Race, Place and Culture. This series will address the intersections and impacts of race, place and culture on lives around our state; look for upcoming events that focus on these issues in the arts, education, labor and more.

The discussion will be led by Charles Mudede and Lance Rhoades and moderated by Tonya Mosley. Mudede is the screenwriter of Police Beat and Zoo and editor for The Stranger. Rhoades is the director of film studies at the Seattle Film Institute and a member of the Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau. Mosley is a broadcast reporter and regular contributor to Al Jazeera America, The Huffington Post and KUOW-FM.

Humanities Washington’s Think & Drink program brings hosted conversations on provocative topics and new ideas to pubs, tasting rooms and other non-traditional venues around the state, fostering community discussions by meeting people where they already gather.
