Celebrate Juneteenth with Tribeca Festival

  • Hazing, by Byron Hurt, takes a critical look at the timeworn and often dangerous tradition of hazing within sports, fraternal organizations and other settings.
  • The Big Payback, by Ericka Alexander and Whitney Dow, offers a contemporary perspective on the hot topic of reparations for one of America’s original sins: the enslavement of kidnapped Africans. Go here for tickets to a free screening at the legendary Apollo Theatre on Sun., June 19, at 6 p.m. ET.
  • After Sherman, by Jon Sesrie-Goff, is a story about inheritance and the tension that defines our collective American history. It explores coastal South Carolina as a site of pride and racial trauma through Gullah cultural retention and land preservation.
  • Inner Wound Real, by Carrie Hawks, relays the story of three BIPOC folks who self-injure, then find new ways to cope.
