GRoW Sponsors Watts Leadership Institute's Black Panther Screening & Summer Celebration

GRoW will sponsor a day of educational programming and celebration, in honor of the UCLA Watts Leadership Institute (WLI). On August 11, 2018, 150 Watts community members will travel across Los Angeles to American Cinematheque's historic Aero Theater in Santa Monica for a 3D screening of Disney's Black Panther. 

Following the screening, community members will participate in a Q&A session with Jeffrey Byrd, former Co-Chair of the African American Steering Committee (AASC) of the DGA and current AASC Director Category Representative. Later that evening, 150 community leaders, philanthropists, academics, and entrepreneurs will attend a celebration at the Annenberg Community Beach House to recognize the critical work of WLI and their inaugural cohort.
