Show Me Series

SHOW ME: Judas and the Black Messiah

with ROCK the Community

Opens Jul 22, 2021

ROCK the Community joins Ragtag Cinema to discuss community power, and the power of genre in Shaka King's bombshell film about Chairman Fred Hampton and an FBI-plant.


About the series:


The Show Me Series is a nod to our long-established proclivity as Missourians to approach new things with a hint of skepticism (until we see it for ourselves, of course). As well, a challenge to show our community all the possibilities shared experiences with film can hold — and the potential to serve as a catalyst for conversations that can move our collective pendulum closer to equity, inclusion, and unity.

Rooted in media literacy, and challenging the cinema canon — post-film discussions will take us beyond content, to interrogate form, intention, and reaction — and weave historical contexts with the here and now.



Ragtag Cinema is honored to co-host the Show Me Series with our Community Partners.

The Show Me Series is monthly, and free to the public.
