The series spans from the 1920s to the present. “Within Our Gates,” a silent film from 1920, was the first film to be screened.
Matthew Bernstein, department chair for Film & Media Studies at Emory, and Dr. Nsenga Burton, professor of film studies, joined “City Lights” host Lois Reitzes to talk about the event.

The events began Jan. 22 and will run on Wednesdays through April 22.
