Looking For Langston at 30: A Film Screening Celebrating Queer Harlem

November 25, 2020

As part of Columbia’s contributions to the 2020 celebration of the centennial of the Harlem Renaissance, The Forum will be hosting an online screening of Isaac Julien’s landmark 1989 film Looking for Langston followed by a discussion with the director and a roundtable of commentators.


This event recognizes the significance of the thirtieth anniversary of Looking for Langston in black studies, queer studies, and cultural studies, and will explore Julien’s gorgeous meditation on black art, poetry, music, community, and intimacy.


This free public event, which will be entirely online, joins the program for Harlem Renaissance 100, bringing to celebration a signal film and lively discussion that focuses on queer Harlem.

The event will take place on December 9, 2020
from 2:00 PM to 4:30 PM EST and you can register for it here
