Fade to Black: Blacula
Monthly film series, presented by LANGSTON, focused on the representation of Black people in film and it's affect on culture and society. Our kickoff series focuses on horror films. Each film screening will have a special guest who will participate in a talk-back about the film with our curator and hostess, Isabella L Price.
Advertised as the 100th production of American International studios, Blacula stars actor/singer William Marshall in the title role. An 18th century African prince, Blacula is transmogrified into a vampire while visiting Transylvania. Two centuries later, he rises from his coffin to wreak havoc in the Watts district of Los Angeles. Blaculas particular target is Tina (Vonetta McGee), whom he thinks is the reincarnation of his long-ago lady love.
