Crocker Art Museum says
For the past four years, the Crocker Art Museum has presented a Black History Month Celebration, which has become a major Sacramento event focused on African American history, art, and culture. In 2017, given this unique time of social change and exploration, the Crocker will collaborate with the Sojourner Truth Multicultural Art Museum, the Sacramento Public Library, and the California Film Foundation's #CineSoul African American Film Festival to present a film and discussion series examining the representation of black males on film. Join us for as we explore African American history and black perspectives on the big screen.

"Get on the Bus" follows several Black men on a cross country bus trip to the Million Man March. On the bus are an eclectic set of characters including a laid off aircraft worker, a former gang member, a Hollywood actor, a cop who is of mixed racial background, and a white bus driver; all make the trek discussing issues surrounding the march, manhood, religion, politics, and race.
