A Black History Month Special: 'Woke Up Black', followed by a Q&A with the director and subjects!
Mary F. Morten, 2011, 60 min.
'Woke Up Black' follows a two-year period in the lives of five Chicago-area African American youth, highlighting their struggles, triumphs and dreams as they start their journey into adulthood. Winner of a 2012 Black Excellence Award from the African American Arts Alliance of Chicago, the film places at its center the voices of Black youth - their ideas, attitudes and opinions that are so often overlooked in society at large. The youth featured include Rosalee, a high-school graduate who's the first in her family to attend college; Carter, a student athlete who was adopted by a gay couple when he was 10; Morgan, an aspiring engineer from a predominately white suburb; Ace, a self-identified genderqueer activist whose family has difficulty accepting her identity; and Sheldon, a community organizer who recently became a dad.

Q&A with director Mary F. Morten and subjects Ace and Sheldon will take place immediately following the film.
