Not Black Enough documentary to be screened as part of First Friday presentation

Penn State College of Medicine’s Department of Humanities and Office for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion are joining to host a First Friday Presentation of Not Black Enough, a documentary film created by Tracey Anarella. A short clip from the film will be screened and discussed, followed with a question-and-answer session. The event will take place noon to 1 p.m. Dec. 7 in the College’s Lecture Room D (Room C7619).

This film takes a sometimes humorous, always personal, brutally honest and insightful look into a seldom-explored phenomenon that is pervasive in black culture – the ostracizing of blacks for being not black enough. Not Black Enough, a feature-length documentary, will explore the reasons behind this practice of fear and loathing internal to the black community. Tracey Anarella is an international award-winning film maker, director, producer, editor and cinematographer.

There will also be a free screening of the film, in its entirety, at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 6 at the Midtown Cinema, 250 Reilly St., Harrisburg, followed by a talk-back with Tracey Anarella and Penn State Health physician Tiffany Fischer, MD, PhD, after the film.

Both events are free and open to the public, and registration is not required.
