African American Film Series: Messwood

February 2 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Declining participation leads Milwaukee’s own Messmer (predominantly Black) and Shorewood (predominantly white) high schools to combine their football programs. After a successful season in 2018, quite a few starters graduate and in 2019 the team is forced to rebuild. At the center of this familiar and thrilling sports season drama, these teenage athletes attempt to make sense of their adolescence and of the perceived and tangible racial fissures in southeast Wisconsin.  

Followed by a post-film discussion with the directors. For more information or to request accommodations contact Sociocultural Programming: sociocul@uwm.edu
