Filmmaker Studies Black History Month Debate

Wednesday, February 1, 2012

For years, there’s been debate in African-American communities about the importance of black history month.

29 year old filmmaker Shukree Hassan Tilghman used the debate as the basis of his latest work – called More Than A Month. The film will be screened Wednesday night in Detroit.

Tilghman spoke with WDET’s Jerome Vaughn about his journeys around the country…discussing the worth of ethnic heritage months.

…an entertaining and informative film.

Tilghman’s film – More Than A Month – will be shown tonight (Wed) at 6:30 at the Virgil H- Carr Cultural Arts Center in Detroit.
