'The Cool World' with special guests [Harlem Homegrown]
Harlem Homegrown - Under the Influence of Sharifa Rhodes-Pitts

One night screening of a 1960's portrayal of Harlem street life, chosen by author of 'Harlem is Nowhere', Sharifa Rhodes-Pitts for the series 'Harlem Homegrown'. Followed by Q&A with Rhodes-Pitts and star Ronnie Clanton and a reading from 'Harlem is Nowhere.

The Cool World
Dir. Shirley Clarke, 1964, 120 min.
Sharifa Rhodes-Pitts told us "I first heard of The Cool World because of its connection with poet and activist June Jordan, who worked as an assistant to producer Frederick Wiseman. The film's attempt to capture the reality of streetlife in Harlem takes us directly into the problem of how the neighborhood has been represented, misrepresented, and imagined, which is also a big concern of my book Harlem is Nowhere: A Journey to the Mecca of Black America. I look forward to viewing and discussing this film with Ronnie Clanton, who starred as its protagonist, Duke (credited in the film as Hampton Clanton)." Ronnie "Hampton" Clanton also stared in the seminal and groundbreaking film the Education of Sonny Carson (1974) as Sonny Carson.

AFTER THE SCREENING: Conversation, Q&A with Sharifa Rhodes-Pitts and Ronnie Clanton.
Plus: A short reading from Harlem is Nowhere with Sharifa Rhodes-Pitts

Part of the Maysles Cinema's monthly series, "Harlem Homegrown": Films Made For Harlem, By Harlem.
