Join us in the Gainey Room at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 22, for a showing of "A Thousand and One." The movie follows unapologetic and free-spirited Inez (Teyana Taylor), who kidnaps six-year-old Terry from the foster care system. Holding onto their secret and each other, mother and son set out to reclaim their sense of home, identity, and stability, in a rapidly changing New York City.
A tribute to parental devotion and a testament to Teyana Taylor's talent, this movie presents a heart-wrenching portrait of perseverance in the face of systemic inequity.
