Underground Railroad Film Series

The Underground Railroad Film Series (URFS) is the neighborhood participation component of the Langston Hughes Performing Arts Center’s African American Film Festival.    The URFS uses the metaphor of the Underground Railroad to illuminate that community can exist over many miles and many backgrounds with one common cause.

 

Each month from September through February, at various ‘safe houses’ in greater King County, the Underground Railroad Film Series partners with community groups, organizations and traditionally marginalized populations to host a screening of films by or about Black people that intersect across cultures, providing opportunities for community engagement and self-reflection.

The 2010-2011 Underground Railroad Film Series has been made possible through the generous support of
