Diversity Matters is proud to support the BFI Black Star Season; A celebration of black screen talent in film, TV and special events October – December 2016!
Travel back with BFI to the earliest days of American cinema, where black performers fought against racism and stereotypes to blaze a trail for their inheritors to tread. View the giant impact of small-screen performers in Britain, holla at the Boyz n The Hood, sing along with Dreamgirls and draw inspiration from the civil rights movement with Selma.
There is not one single story of black stardom. Alongside iconic work from much-loved contemporary greats like Denzel Washington, Angela Bassett and David Oyelowo, BFI spotlight contributions from important but less-heralded figures like the late Paul Robeson, who seared his singular brand of intensity and moral clarity on to screens in America and the UK.
From mid-Oct visit the Atrium for a free exhibition of posters related to Black Star, courtesy of The Separate Cinema Archive.
