Discussion / Film Screening with Chip Duncan and Salim Amin
Following a social hour, guests will be treated to a screening of "Mo & Me." In the 90-minute documentary, Salim Amin, son and only child of Mohamed "Mo" Amin, undertakes a journey of recollection and reflection into the life of the frequently absent, globe-trotting father he loved, revered and feared. In his late teens, Mohamed Amin abandons his studies to pursue a career in photography which, over the course of thirty years, will turn him into a front-line cameraman extraordinaire - and, arguably, the most renowned photojournalist of his era.
Brad Pruitt, executive director of America's Black Holocaust Museum, will moderate a discussion with Salim Amin and Chip Duncan following the film.
