Film Screening - "The Negro Soldier" (1944)
Stage Door Canteen

Join us for a screening of the newly restored version of the Frank Capra unit’s pioneering film about race relations, The Negro Soldier. Beautifully restored by the preservation lab at National Archives, Washington, DC, the film allows viewers to see the extraordinary production values of a film released in 35mm. This film was added to the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry in 2011. David Culbert, John L. Loos Professor of History at Louisiana State University, will introduce the film — a significant artifact in the origins of America’s post-1945 Civil Rights Movement. He is co-author of the standard work about the making of and significance of the film. For more information call 504-528-1944 x 229.
