Bringing music from the early years of Beatlemania, throughout the career of the Fab Four and into the hits with Wings, as well as solo numbers he made famous, leader Jed Duvall is practically Paul in appearance, mannerism, and musical talent. A must see for all Macca fans!

Janis and Ana, two disparate women, meet while in labor. Both are single and became pregnant by accident. Middle-aged Janis (Penélope Cruz) is exultant; adolescent Ana (Milena Smit) is scared, repentant and traumatized. Janis tries to encourage Ana while they move like sleepwalkers through the hospital corridors. Though few words are exchanged, the two are inextricably linked when a turn of fate changes their lives in a decisive way.

Reel and Meal Film: Ida B. Wells: A Passion for Justice 

Though virtually forgotten today, Ida B. Wells-Barnett was a household name in black America during much of her lifetime (1863-1931). William Greaves’ film Ida B. Wells: A Passion for Justice is a stirring biography of a crusading journalist, anti-lynching campaigner, and black suffragette during the most repressive years of the Jim Crow period. More information and pickup dinner plans!

The film begins at 7 p.m. either live in the New Deal Café or via Zoom. Well-known multimedia journalist and Baltimore City native, Nicki Mayo, will lead the discussion after the film.

Greenbelt’s Co-op Grocery will again offer a vegan meal for $7.99. This week’s selection is Thai Dinner of Macro Vegetarian’s Pad Thai and Thai Dumplings with steam broccoli. Phone in your pre-order to 301-474-0522 by 1 p.m. on Feb. 21, for pick-up between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the deli. Depending on demand, there may be dinners on a walk-in basis, if not pre-ordered. People may also choose from a varied menu in-person at the Café.

The Greenbelt Black History and Culture Committee in celebration of Greenbelt’s Black History Month co-sponsors this month’s film along with the Peace and Justice Coalition.
