Special Black History Month Film Screening

Paul Laurence Dunbar:
Beyond the Mask

Saturday, February 1st
5:30 - 7:30pm
This full length documentary explores the life and legacy of Paul Laurence Dunbar, one of the first African Americans to achieve national fame as a writer. Born to former slaves in Dayton, Ohio, Paul Laurence Dunbar (1872-1906), is best remembered for his poem, “We Wear The Mask” and for lines from “Sympathy” that became the title of Maya Angelou’s autobiography I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings. 
Paul Laurence Dunbar: Beyond the Mask explores his relationships with luminaries such as William Dean Howells, Frederick Douglass, and Booker T. Washington; as well as his stormy marriage, the tension between his dialect and standard poetry, and the multiple cultural legacies he left behind.
The film screening is free and open to the public.
Registration is required.
