Free Movie Screening: Bonton + Ideal!

South Dallas Cultural Center

You're invited to the free screening of the latest film in our "Neighborhood Stories" program. This film explores the Bonton and Ideal neighborhoods in South Dallas. Initially it was a series of segregated developments built for black Dallasites We discovered the neighborhoods have a rich legacy of soulful music, black-owned businesses, and close social ties. As with other segregated neighborhoods in the American South, Bonton and Ideal neighborhoods have struggled with the effects of political decisions aimed to isolate the neighborhood physically, socially, and economically. The love and dedication of long time residents has spurred city-led revitalization, though not always with the neighborhood’s interests in mind. Join us for this film and discussion to find out what the future holds for this community. The Panelists will be: Milton Baker, former Bonton resident, H.I.S. Bridgebuilders Gerald Britt, former Ideal resident, CitySquare Sherri Mixon, Ideal resident, T.R. Hoover Clifton Reese, Bonton resident, H.I.S. Bridgebuilders Craig Weflen, Filmmaker, bcWORKSHOP Moderator - Vicki Meek March 11th, 2016 @ 7pm South Dallas Cultural Center Theater 3400 S.
