Screened in conjunction with the 24th Annual Evelyn G. Etheridge Conference on the Harlem Renaissance at Paine College, The Cotton Club stars Richard Gere, Gregory Hines, Diane Lane, and Lonette McKee. The film was inspired by the pictorial history of the same name by James Haskins, who produced more than one hundred books, many of which highlight the achievements of African Americans and cover the history and culture of Africa and the African American experience. At the center of the film is the legendary Harlem jazz club of the 1920s and 1930s. FREE.
