Family Movie: The Watsons Go To Birmingham

Saturday, February 2nd, 2019
10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Join us for free popcorn and a movie to kick off Black History Month. The Watson Go To Birmingham is set in the Summer of 1963, where Flint, Michigan is home to the Watsons, a close knit “All American Family” made up of Daniel and Wilona Watson and their three kids, 15- year-old juvenile delinquent Byron, nerdy 11 year-old Kenny, and 8-year-old adorable sister Joetta. When Byron’s antics go over the top, his parents realize enough is enough and they decide the family needs a dose of Grandma Sands’ no nonsense approach in Birmingham, Alabama. So the Watsons head South with plenty of comedy en route. When they finally make it to Birmingham, they discover that life is very different there than in Flint – and not necessarily for the better. During that historic summer, the Watsons find themselves caught up in something far bigger than Byron’s antics. Something that will change their lives and country forever. Sponsored by the Friends of the William Jeanes Memorial Library. No registration necessary.
