Enjoy an evening with Communities First, Inc., full of food, art, and a great film, A Most Beautiful Thing.

Directed by award-winning filmmaker and Olympic rower Mary Mazzio, A Most Beautiful Thing chronicles the first African American high school rowing team in the country. The team was made up of young men, many of whom were in rival gangs from the West Side of Chicago, who came together to row in the same boat, a fantastic story based on the memoir of Arshay Cooper.

Doors open at 5:30p for dinner, and the film begins at 6:45p.

The panel discussion following the film will be on Saturday, December 4 at 2p.
