DESCRIPTION

Peach and Center on Halsted team up to bring a very special screening of "Jewel's Catch One".

Jewel’s Catch One’s documents the oldest Black owned disco in America and establishes the legacy of businesswoman, activist, and healer, Jewel Thais-Williams, who stood up against hate and discrimination for 42 years. The story of Jewel and “The Catch” celebrates four decades of music, fashion, celebrity, and activism that helped change the course of our country by breaking down racial, social, and cultural barriers. One of the original safe spaces for both the LGBT and Black communities, The Catch also served as a refuge for many during the AIDS crisis. 

After the screening mix, mingle, and bask in the sounds of DJ Hannah. Cash bar will be available.
