BEST OF FEST 2018
FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 15 | 6 PM | $12 ($10 for Friends of SAC) – FREE FOR STUDENTS
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.
Directed By George Tillman Jr.

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.
Take a rarely seen peek into the creative process when nine East End artists take over the galleries of Southampton Arts Center with pop-up studios, exhibiting completed works while focusing on new projects during gallery hours. TAKEOVER Artists include Scott Bluedorn, Daniel Cabrera, Darlene Charneco, Kara Hoblin, Ruby Jackson, Laurie Lambrecht, Jerome Lucani, Paton Miller, and Jeff Muhs.
Every Thursday from 6-8 PM - FREE! Come socialize with the "Takeover" artists in residence in the galleries every Thursday from 6-8 PM during the run of the show. Watch them work, play ping pong, listen to music, have a drink, and just hang out!
