The Newark Black Film Festival (NBFF), the longest running festival of its kind in the United States, continues its 44th season with a free screening of I Called Him Morgan on Wednesday, July 11 at 7 pm. The film is an exploration of the relationship between jazz trumpeter Lee Morgan and his common-law wife Helen, who was responsible for his demise in 1972 at Slug's Saloon in the East Village. The host for the evening will be Sheila Anderson, WBGO Announcer. Wayne Winborne, Executive Director of the Institute of Jazz Studies, will be the speaker. Since its introduction by the Museum in 1974, the NBFF has provided a forum for emerging writers, directors, producers, performers that highlight the work and history of African Americans and the African Diaspora that reflect the diversity of viewpoints, from documentaries to the avant-garde. Screenings are followed by a Q&A session. For the 18th consecutive year, the Festival is made possible by Bank of America. The official airline is United Airlines.
