    African-American Film Festival: St. Louis Blues

    Will Handy (played as a boy by Billy Preston, then Nat King Cole) grows up in Memphis with his preacher father and Aunt Hagar (Pearl Bailey). His father wants Will only to use his musical gifts in church, but the young man can’t resist the sounds of the streets. After he writes a theme song for a local politician, speakeasy singer Gogo Germaine (Eartha Kitt) convinces Will to be her accompanist. He’s estranged from his father while he publishes many blues songs. Will the family ever reunite? Ella Fitzgerald also stars.

    AnEta Sewell will do a 20-minute talk to set up each film and will host a question-and-answer session afterward.
