Love in Black

In collaboration with The Texas Theatre, Pleasure Style Attitude and The Connect Dallas, South Dallas Cultural Center is happy to present “Love in Black”, a film series representing Black love.

Starting in February, we’re inviting the community to join us as we showcase three well-established movies focused on what it means to find, develop, and grow in love. Tickets are only $1.00 per screening! So grab your friend, boo, or come solo and enjoy a three week program full of film, Blackness, and love.
