VILLAGE MATTERS: February 2024

Film & conversation for Black History Month:  Feb. 20, 7:30 pm

“One Night in Miami,” directed by Regina King (2020), will be our featured film at Farley’s. It’s an imagined conversation on how to move the civil rights movement forward, among four well-known Black men: boxer Mohammad Ali, activist Malcom X, football star Jim Brown, and singer-songwriter Sam Cooke. Following the movie, we’ll have our own conversation about it.

Happy 70th, Gary!
