The Rehoboth Beach Film Society in partnership with The Southern Delaware Alliance for Racial Justice are proud to present the second annual Rehoboth Beach African-American Film Festival. The mission of this event is to deepen awareness of African-American cultures and experiences, and to explore community differences and commonalities through the art of film.

Four films will be presented over President’s Day weekend (Friday, February 15 – Sunday, February 17). “Black Is The Color” corrects the record on the place of artists of color within the history of American art. “Father’s Kingdom” examines the complicated legacy of a civil rights leader far ahead of his time. “Service To Man” chronicles a fraught and unlikely friendship at a historically black medical school in the South in the 1960s. Finally, “Everything But A Man” follows the life of a strong independent woman in search of love. This year’s selection of films aims to bring representation, hope, understanding, and, yes, a little bit of romance to the big screen.
