Film Premiere: No Longer An Island

Starts at 6:00 PM on February 28th, 2013
Cost: FREE

You are invited to join the Men’s Wellness Council for our community film premiere of No Longer An Island, a documentary film produced by the Men’s Wellness Council and Walnut Way and directed by Darren Alexander Cole.

The Men’s Wellness Council was developed as a space for African American men to explore the meaning of health and wellness and identify areas of action in their community. The Council proved to be a model for fostering transformative social connections and mentorship across generations and resulted in a documentary film to promote community dialogue. Funded by the Wisconsin Partnership Program, the initiative is a partnership between Walnut Way, the YMCA Northside, UWM Zilber School of Public Health, the Center for Urban Population Health, and UW Collaborative Center for Health Equity.
