Black Love Classic Movies Series – The Wiz

WEDU and the Tampa Theatre invites guests to donate a copy of their favorite children’s book to benefit young readers in our community and dress as their favorite storybook characters to participate in fun photo ops and a pre-film costume parade after Mayor Jane Castor welcomes the crowd and officially kicks off the Black Love Classics Series.

Black Love Classic Movies Series – To Sleep With Anger

A slow-burning masterwork of the early 1990s, writer/director Charles Burnett’s To Sleep with Anger is a singular piece of American mythmaking. In a towering performance, Danny Glover plays the enigmatic Southern drifter Harry, a devilish charmer who turns up out of the blue on the South Central Los Angeles doorstep of his old friends. In short order, Harry’s presence seems to cast a chaotic spell on what appeared to be a peaceful household, exposing smoldering tensions between parents and children, tradition and change, virtue and temptation.
