Emancipation Park Conservancy kicks off its free Movie in the Tre series with House Party 2 on
Friday, March 6, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. at Emancipation Park in the grand lawn area near Elgin Street. The 2019
inaugural series was a major success and has become a staple event for the park.
March is Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Awareness Month. It is an annual, nationwide
celebration that honors and recognizes the African American college experience including important HBCU figures that have helped shape these institutions of higher education while also unifying HBCU communities. House Party 2 follows the experiences of students navigating their first year of college.
“The series has been well received by the community and we plan to continue producing fun and engaging events at Emancipation Park that are desirable and impactful for park visitors,” said Ramon Manning, Emancipation Park Conservancy, Board Chairman.
Movie in the Tre is a free re-occurring programming event series to attract organic traffic to the park and focuses on community empowerment, awareness, collaboration, and fellowship. Last year attendees enjoyed movies such as Black Panther, Hidden Figures, Akeelah and the Bee, and School Daze. Patrons also experienced food, vendors, shopping, music, and prizes before the movie screening. Free tickets are available and can be secured here. The upcoming 2020 Movie in the Tre schedule includes: Fridays, May 1st: Lion King; September 18th: Just Mercy; and October 9th: Crooklyn. Lawn chairs and blankets are welcome.
