The event will also include a reception and a panel discussion. The 40-minute documentary is about track and field coach Ed Temple from Tennessee State University and the “Tigerbelles,” a famed group of African-American female athletes.

Officials say among those attending the event will be Temple’s daughter and the filmmakers who created the documentary.

On Feb. 28, the Ali Center will screen a film called “Long Time Coming” that looks at racial segregation in the South more than a half-century ago.
