DON’T GO TELLIN’ YOUR MOMMA Screening & Panel Discussion
June 15 @ 7:00 pm
One Night Only! Thursday, June 15
In 1970, a group of Black educators in Chicago developed a flashcard set of the Alphabet in order to provide Black centered teaching materials to a vastly White landscape of textbooks and learning materials. The Black ABCs were born. Now 50 years later, as artist Topaz Jones debuts his 2nd album, DON’T GO TELLIN’ YOUR MOMMA is a view into his and America’s Black Identity through 26 individual scenes, each representing a letter and Topaz’s corresponding update to their meanings.
Panel Discussion with director Topaz Jones, Montclair educator Rodney Jackson, author Alliah Agostini Livingstone and comedienne Jelly, moderated by poet Kween Moore to follow the screening.
Presented in Partnership with Montclair Community Partners Juneteenth Committee
