Black Owned Chicago Sells Out Harper Theater, Shows “Farewell Obama” Documentary

FarewellObama-8064

Black Owned Chicago recently released our first short documentary “Farewell Obama” and everything about the event was intentional. We chose The Harper Theater, because of its location: Hyde Park a.k.a. Home of Obama. The screening was January 19, 2017, because that was President Obama’s last day of his presidency. Tickets sold out in 2 days. Check out some pictures from that special evening. (Photo credit: Mamadou Sewa Bah)
