Films, panel talks to mark Black History Month in Detroit

DETROIT (AP) — Films, discussions and other activities are planned throughout February by the Detroit Historical Society in recognition of Black History Month.

Among the offerings of the society's Winter Film Series is “With Love from Idlewild,” which showcases filmmaker Tinisha Brugnone's travels through a historically black vacation destination in western Michigan. Screenings are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday at the Dossin Great Lakes Museum on Belle Isle.

Other events include a panel discussion on Feb. 20 exploring the widening racial equity gap in Detroit, and a Feb. 29 event focusing on the urban agricultural movement that includes a panel talk, craft activities and a vendor marketplace. Both events will be held at the Detroit Historical Museum in Midtown.
