Susan Woodfine, Heritage Lower Saint Lawrence
Rimouski - To celebrate Black History Month, Heritage Lower St. Lawrence presents in its english version, Miracle at St. Anna from the director Spike Lee, a legend in the black american movies, Wednesday February 11th, at 7:30 PM at Cinéma Paraloeil in Rimouski.
Miracle at St. Anna is a gripping World War II epic that chronicles the story of four African-American soldiers who are members of the U.S. Army as part of the all-black 92nd Division Buffalo Soldiers stationed in Tuscany, Italy, during World War II. They experience the tragedy and triumph of the war as they find themselves trapped behind enemy lines and separated from their unit after one of them risks his life to save an Italian boy.
For those who want to stay afterwards, we have an invited guest, Achilles Lukusa. He will be on hand to give his thoughts on the film and Black History Month. Mr. Lukusa is a Master’s student at UQAR from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. His research focuses on immigration and the regions.
Many more activités are held in our region during the Black History Month. In Rimouski, they are organized by Accueil et Intégration BSL. Please visite their website for more information : www.aibsl.org.
