The Diversity Film Series is a weekly film series, which runs from September 9 through November 10, 2020. The series features both narrative and documentary films that explore the Black experience in America. Post screening interviews will be led by entertainment reporter Cheryl Washington, that will serve as a starting point for people to begin a conversation with one another, stimulate community dialogue, broaden awareness and encourage audience members to work toward mutual understanding. All screenings are FREE and will be screening live at the Ridgefield Playhouse and also available virutally.
