Wednesday, Oct 05, 2016

Tickets $20


She is a single mother raising six kids. He is a bachelor intimidated by fatherhood. Each has found their match in the classic film Claudine. With the lead characters portrayed exquisitely by Diahann Carroll and James Earl Jones, the film navigates the welfare system, family structure and racial tensions brewing in Harlem’s consciousness. Presented in 35mm and curated by filmmaker Ava DuVernay, ARRAY @ The Broad’s screening of this 1974 motion picture will serve as the springboard for a post-screening conversation with Diahann Carroll and Shaun Robinson about economic and social stigmas and the role government plays in personal pursuits.

This program is now sold out. Join The Broad's email list to learn about upcoming ARRAY @ The Broad programs:
