Community Screening at Library
May 27, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
MMP presents Our Side at the Atlantic City Library. Our Side tells the story of a community-led theater production in Atlantic City — a stage adaptation of Growing up in the Other Atlantic City: Wash’s and the Northside by Atlantic City native Turiya S.A. Raheem. From bustling streets to broken promises, from discrimination to resiliency, the film follows local residents staging a play about the historically Black community of Atlantic City through the lens of Raheem’s own family odyssey. Coming together to perform their community history shapes residents’ hearts and minds and helps them imagine a better future for their community.
