The U-M Club of Washington DC invites you to join us for a viewing of the original film “The 51st State,” followed by a talk-back with members of the cast. This event will honor Black History Month.
“The 51st State” is an original one hour film from DC’s Arena Stage, one of our country’s most highly regarded regional theatres. The film had its world premiere last fall, inspired by the protests and and the drive for the creation of a movement after the murder of George Floyd – and the quest for sovereignty for Washington, DC.
Following the viewing, UMDC will host a special “talk-back” with two members of the outstanding cast and Arena Stage Artistic Director Molly Smith.
