Special Screening of “Balck Indians: An American Story”

Black-IndiansSACRAMENTO – In honor of Black History Month, California State Parks and the State Indian Museum present a Native Film Screening of “Black Indians: An American Story” on Saturday, February 21. There will be showings at 11:00 a.m and 2:00 p.m.

Narrated by James Earl Jones, the film brings to light a little known and often forgotten part of America’s past — the cultural and ethnic fusion of Native and African Americans. Produced and directed by the award-winning Native American production company Rich-Heape Films, the film explores what factors initially brought the two groups together, what drove them apart and the challenges they face today.

The State Indian Museum is located at 2618 K Street. Museum admission is $3 for adults and $2 for children ages 6 to 17. For more information, call (916) 324-8112.
