Thursday, March 5 at 7:30pm. Westchester Italian Cultural Center - 1 Generoso Pope Pl, Tuckahoe, NY 10707. Members $20, Non-Members $30. Register Here. Award-winning filmmaker Anton Evangelista will present “Il Signor Jackson,” a story of African American New Yorker Edward Jackson.

Born in Harlem and raised in a predominantly Italian American neighborhood in the Bronx in the 1950’s, Jackson worked to fulfill his dream of becoming an Italian-language teacher in the New York City public school system. Over the years, with his dedication to the field and his manifest love of all things Italian, he has become a prominent figure of Italian biculturalism and bilingualism both in New York and among his beloved community in Perugia. Enjoy this movie screening, followed by a discussion by Anton and Signor Jackson.
