Join us for a screening of this Emmy Award-winning documentary that explores the most controversial and misunderstood language variety in the United States: African American Language. With the perspectives of everyday people and the guidance of historians, linguists, and educators, the series showcases the history of the language, the symbolic role it plays in the lives of African Americans, and the tremendous impact on the language and culture of the United States.

Afterwards, we will have a Q&A session with producers Dr. Walt Wolfram and Stephen Black from NC State University's Language and Life Project.
