U-M Community: Free Digital Screening of SOME OLD BLACK MAN: Starring Wendell Pierce and Charlie Robinson

You are invited to a special screening for the U-M community of SOME OLD BLACK MAN, a live theater piece produced by the University Musical Society (UMS) and filmed under strict public health and safety protocols as part of acclaimed actor Wendell Pierce’s (The Wire, Jack Ryan) Digital Artist Residency at the University of Michigan.

The screening is free with registration and available on-demand from Wednesday, February 24 through Sunday, February 28. Duration is approximately 1 hour, 45 minutes. Closed captioning is available.

Written only a few years before the history-making events of 2020, Some Old Black Man frames racial prejudice with an honesty rarely confronted and dramatized. It challenges people of all ages to learn about the unique perspective of elders whose lived struggles created opportunities for future generations and to confront the experiential divides that can grow larger due to generational differences.
