The Avon Theatre presents a Black Lens screening of WHEN HARLEM SAVED A KING Thursday, Feb .27 at 7 p.m. Post-film Q&A with producer Voza Rivers, moderated by Harriette Cole Pre-film reception at 6:30 p.m. WHEN HARLEM SAVED A KING tells a story not known by most Americans and certainly not taught in school. It examines the events leading up to and following, the day Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was stabbed in the chest with a letter opener by a black woman named was Izola Curry. The stabbing occurred on September 20, 1958 during a book signing event for Dr. King's book, Stride Towards Freedom, at a Harlem department store. Hosted by Fox News Consultant Dr. Jeff Gardere, WHEN HARLEM SAVED A KING will take viewers back to 1958 in a 48 Hours-style mystery to both engage and educate the audience while exploring what was happening in America - and in Harlem in particular - politically and socially in 1958, during the infancy of the civil rights movement. The film includes interviews with several people who were part of Dr. King's inner circle; members of the medical team that saved him; the family members of Izola Curry; politicians, historians, and journalists, as well as long-forgotten news footage of that day. Not Rated. In English. 90 minutes
