Open Show New York Presents“Separate, But Equal” Documentary Screening July 16th

From time to time we’ll be coordinating special events outside our normal salons with Open Show NY Presents. For our inaugural event, we’ll be screening the one hour documentary “Separate, But Equal” at Brooklyn Oenology followed by a Q+A with the filmmaker Shawn D. Wilson.

“Separate, But Equal” is an extraordinary treasure: Rediscovered photographs by Henry Clay Anderson that document a virtually ignored and neglected chapter in African-American history – the proud, dignified community of middle-class blacks that existed throughout the South at the dawn of the civil rights movement – Separate, But Equal
