Film Premiere: The Montiers: An American Story

Wednesday, March 14

Film History Parkway District

African Americans have long played a leading role in the cultural and political life of Philadelphia. One family’s history, the Montier-Morreys, is a particularly resonant chapter in this undertold story. Join us for the premiere of The Montiers: An American Story, a documentary about the history of the family, their role in Philadelphia, and the artwork that survives to illuminate our knowledge today. Coproduced by WHYY and the Museum, the film features comments from descendant William Pickens III as well as curators and scholars. The screening will be followed by a conversation and an audience Q&A. The film airs on WHYY on Friday, March 16.
