Admissions: Free
Presented by: UIC Latino Cultural Center


  • National Hispanic Heritage Month is here and it is a time of great cultural pride, but how beneficial is this approach to affirming our cultural heritage and history?
  • Should these month-long celebrations be eliminated or should they be preserved?

These are the questions explored by African American filmmaker Shukree Hassan Tilghman as he embarks on a cross-country campaign to end Black History Month. Both amusing and thought-provoking, More Than a Month examines what the treatment of history tells us about race and power in contemporary America.

  • Approx. 60min.

Join us after the film for a panel discussion with the directors of these cultural centers.

Moderated by Kevin Kumashiro, Asian American Studies and Education.
