A special screening for Black History Month presented with Southampton African American Museum
THE HATE U GIVE (2018 | PG-13 | 132 min.)
Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right. THE HATE U GIVE is based on the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller by Angie Thomas and stars Amandla Stenberg as Starr, with Russell Hornsby, Regina Hall, Common, Anthony Mackie and Issa Rae.

Southampton African American Museum‘s mission is to promote an understanding and appreciation of African American culture by creating programs that will preserve the past, encourage learning and enhance the life of the community. SAAM will research and collect local history, produce media events, create exhibits and community celebrations.
SAAM is located at 245 North Sea Road in Southampton, NY. Affectionally called “The Barbershop,” it was a local gathering place for area African Americans from the 1940’s until its closing. In 2010, the Village Historic Preservation Board designated it as the first African American historic landmark in the Village of Southampton, New York.
Come experience and enjoy a soothing, deeply relaxing, immersive Sound Meditation with Daniel Lauter, using hand selected exquisite crystal bowls and gongs, Tibetan and Himalayan bells, rain sticks, and more.
