The African American Museum of the East End Presents

The 7th Annual Black Film Festival November 17

at the New Parrish Art Museum

New York Premiere of Janks Mortons Acclaimed Hoodwinked
to be Featured

Kickoff at Southampton Cultural Center November 9



The African American Museum of the East End will present the 7th Annual Black Film Festival at the new Herzog De Meuron designed Parrish Art Museum, Montauk Highway, Watermill 119 on Saturday, November 17, 2012. The all-day film fest runs from 12:30 pm- 9:00 pm. A major highlight of the festival will be the New York Premiere of acclaimed filmmaker Janks Mortons Hoodwinked, a film that focuses on the way statistics and stereotypes impact on the souls of Black folk. A special kickoff evening on Friday November 9 will take place at the Southampton Cultural Center, 25 Pond Lane from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm and will feature Live Jazz & Spoken Word. Proceeds will benefit the African American Museum of the East End.

Five films will be featured in the marathon festival with a 45 minute break for dinner intermission.


12:30 pm is the family classic Raising Izzie-(2012). Gertie and Izzie are two young girls on their own. Abandoned by their father and orphaned by their mother, they are doing the best they can to stay in school and remain undetected so they can stay together. Directed by Roger M. Bobb and featuring Rockmond Dunbar, Vanessa Williams, Han Soto and Victoria Staley and written by David Martyn Conley.

2:15 pm, Purlie Victorious-(1963), The award winning classic, Ossie Daviss Purlie Victorious premiered on Broadway in 1961 when Americas Civil Rights movement was gearing up for a tumultuous decade. This film version of the play follows the dogged efforts of a black preacher (Ossie Davis) and the young girl (Ruby Dee) who fancies him to swindle an inheritance from the plantation owner he once served (Sorrell Booke, of The Dukes of Hazzard) Alan Alda co-stars in his first film role.

At 4:15 pm, there will be a screening of the short film The Last/First Kiss-(2011).Two twenty-something strangers accidentally encounter one another in a park and forge an unexpected connection. Following which a spontaneous but yet short lived romance develops between the two. Directed by Brooklyn born Andrea Ashton.

(45 Minute Dinner Intermission)

5:15 The Learning Tree-(1969) a 1969 drama film The story, set in Kansas during the 1920s, covers less than a year in the life of a black teenager, and documents the veritable deluge of events which force him into sudden manhood. Written and directed by Gordon Parks, the film is based upon his 1964 semi-autobiographical novel of the same name and is the first Hollywood studio film to be directed by an African American. In 1989, The Learning Tree was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".


7:15 pm, Hoodwinked-(2012) a critically praised film that examines the institutional forces that shape perceptions of black males and affect how they regard themselves. Documentarian Janks Morton has a simple message when it comes to statistics that portray African-Americans in a negative light: Go to the source and fact-check the figures for yourself. Its probably one of the rare, if not the only cinematic experience where you will see an array of real life Black scholars-including Boyce Watkins, finance professor at Syracuse University, Marc Lamont Hill, an education professor at Columbia University and Ivory Toldson, professor of counseling psychology at Howard University-opining on statistics and stereotypes and their impact on the souls of Black folk, particularly the young, followed by a Q&A with producer Janks Morton.

The Friday Kickoff will feature Certain Moves and Kenneth Morsch & Special Guest Yung D. Jones, Old School Ballads. Tickets are $20.

All Day Film Festival tickets are $20 which includes all films & refreshments. Tickets for a single film are $7. For more info, Email info@aamee.org  or call Brenda Simmons, 631-873-7362; Nancy Stevens at 631-369-6163 or Cheryl Buck at 631-897-0384.



About the African American Museum of the East End

Treasure the Past, Tend to the Present, and Transform the Future


The African-American Museum of the East End, formerly known as Randys Barbershop, was declared a Landmark by the Southampton Village Board of Historic Preservation and Architectural Review on December 13, 2010. It is the first Landmark in Southampton Village located outside of the four Historic Districts which were established in 1986-1993. This single story shingled structure was built circa 1950 by Emanuel Seymore in a subdivision named Southampton Terrace. During that time Emanuel Seymore owned and operated the building as a Barber shop on one side and on the other side a beauty parlor run by beauticians, Evelyn Baxter and Katherine Spellman. In the 1970s the building was purchased by Randy Conquest and he continued to utilize the space as a barbershop which had three seats, and in the 1980s on the other side continued to house a Beauty Parlor combined briefly as a nail salon. From the early 50s until it closed in 2006, 245 North Sea Rd was a popular gathering place for the African-American community.


Several years later, when the building faced the possibility of being demolished, a group of community leaders gathered support to have the building purchased with Community Preservation Funds (CPF). They formed a non-profit group, which will be the steward, and they are now in the process of raising funds so that the building can be restored as the African-American Museum of the East End. Their goal is to use the Museum to house historical records, provide educational opportunities, and once again serve as a gathering place for the entire community, which will


The 2012 7th Annual Black Film Festival is made possible in part with funding by the Town of Southampton. Special thanks to the Parrish Art Museum, Village of Southampton, Southampton Cultural Center, Southampton Historical Museum & the Langston Hughes Queens Library.
