Part of Love From BAM and Film

Dir. Channing Godfrey Peoples | 103min, 2020
With Nicole Beharie, Kendrick Sampson, Alexis Chikaeze

Turquoise Jones is a single mom who holds down a household, a rebellious teenager, and pretty much everything that goes down at Wayman’s BBQ & Lounge. Turquoise is also a bona fide beauty queen—she was once crowned Miss Juneteenth, a title commemorating the day that slaves in Texas were freed, two years after the Emancipation Proclamation. Life didn’t turn out as beautifully as the title promised, but now Turquoise is grooming her daughter, Kai, to become Miss Juneteenth, even if Kai wants something else. Channing Godfrey Peoples’ debut feature emanates charm in its portrayal of one Black woman’s self-determination in achieving the American dream.

Tue, Jun 23 at 7pm: Q&A with director Channing Godfrey Peoples and BAM’s Director of Film Programming Ashley Clark
