“Summertime Conversations” with Beloved & Kindred-“Nope”

Tune in on this Thursday August 18th at 3 pm/ET as Dr. Robinson and I bring you a special #SummertimeConversation on the 2022 summer film from Jordan Peele Nope!! While we wrapped up Season 2 with our discussion on Blackness and horror, we could not help but offer a few thoughts on this compelling film!!

Check it out on Auburn Avenue Research Library Facebook Live and YouTube !!

This discussion explores the newest Jordan Peele film Nope. The residents of a lonely gulch in inland California bear witness to an uncanny and chilling discovery. After random objects falling from the sky result in the death of their father, ranch-owning siblings OJ and Emerald Haywood attempt to capture video evidence of an unidentified flying object with the help of tech salesman Angel Torres and documentarian Antlers Holst.

And just in case you want to refresh your memory of the movie, check out the trailer below AND go see it in a theater near you:
