Gary A. Homana, Ph.D and Morna McNulty, Ph.D

This powerful feature-length film captures the rich oral histories of an aging and diminishing population of African-Americans who grew up in the Mason/Dixon border area of Baltimore, and who lived through the era of legal segregation. The narratives document the relevant lives of individuals who attended segregated schools and/or desegregation before and following the 1954 Supreme Court Brown v. Board of Education ruling. The film’s executive director and producer is Dr. Gary A. Homana, and the film is co-directed and co-produced by Dr. Morna McNulty and Dr. F Campbell Jones.

Enjoy an evening with Akimbo, an improv comedy team from Baltimore. Akimbo performs the old-school improv format known as the Harold and seeks to intrigue audiences as much as make them laugh. Every performance is entirely improvised using only a single word suggested by the audience, combined with that strange, sweet phenomenon called improv group mind.

Admission: $10 fundraiser for Little Patuxent Review.
