Fade to Black: Revisiting ‘Tales From the Hood’
It has been a year since the Fade to Black series started and has seen incredible success with guests like Tananarive Due, Tony Todd, Rachel True, and Gerard McMurray. Remarkably the series still continues through the challenges of a post-covid world, to connect audiences together with the films they love.
In honor of the genre that started us off, Fade to Black will be revisiting a film shown early in the run that continues to inspire the genre; 1995’s ‘Tales from the Hood.’ Following a virtual watch-along of the film, a panel of guests will discuss this seminal film, its impacts, and the future of Black horror.
Moving away from the horror genre beginning next month, we begin a new run of films to watch and discuss with fantastic guests. November will mark the shift over to the Kung-Fu genre! For this run of Fade to Black, we will analyze the kick-ass, jive-talking, samurai sword-wielding power of a genre that has many connections between Asian and Black culture. Stay tuned!
