The Black Hollywood Education and Resource Center on Sunday will present a screening of “If My People,” a selection from its second annual Faith-Based and Inspirational Film Festival.

The 4 p.m. screening, which is free to the public, is part of the virtual festival, which began Sept. 18 and has been extended to Oct. 3.

BHERC said it is spotlighting the movie, directed by Mark David Kennerly, because it deals effectively with racial reconciliation from the Black Church’s perspective and racial transformation.

“Given the troubling and persistent ugliness and sheer magnitude of racial unrest in America today, we felt this film provided an opportunity for discussion. Perhaps even the discovery of some solutions,” said John Forbes, BHERC executive director and the festival director.

The event features a post discussion with the director and actors Anthony Shaw-Vaughan, Roderick Garr and Mikayla Leybovich.
