Ali Center hosting film festival in February

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – The Muhammad Ali Center is celebrating African-American History Month with a film festival.

Officials with the Louisville center say the series includes five film screenings in February. Each showing will be followed by discussions of social justice issues raised by each film and its cultural significance.

Doors to the Ali Center’s auditorium will open 30 minutes prior to the start of each film. Attendance is free, but reservations are required.

The first film to be shown will be “12 Years a Slave” on Feb. 6.

The other films are “Sankofa,” which will be shown on Feb. 15; followed by “The Wiz” on Feb. 20; “Do the Right Thing” on Feb. 23; and “Shaft” on Feb. 29.
