Tuesday, February 13, 2018 from 11 AM - 1 PM

Are you looking for a great spot to take your lunch hour? Whether you brought your lunch from home or picked it up from one of the many great restaurants around Midtown, bring it to The Wright and enjoy free films in our Orientation Theater!

A Huey P. Newton Story is an intimate portrait of Huey P. Newton, the late co-founder of the Black Panther Party. Director Spike Lee and Roger Guenveur Smith collaborate for the 7th time to bring Newton's thoughts, philosophies, history and flavour to life. Adapted from Robert Guenveur Smith's Obie Award winning off- Broadway solo performance of the same name, Spike Lee brings the play from the stage to the screen. Shot before a live audience, Spike Lee uses his signature mixture of film and archival footage to capture Newton's "inner mind." This film is a piece of history that will bring the meaning to "Without Struggle There is No Life".

This event is free and open to the public. For more information call (313) 494-5800.
