2023 Cultures & Communities Festival

Cultures & Communities Film Festival & The Space Race

Guided by principles of cultural inclusivity, The 2023 Cultures & Communities Festival, held in Milwaukee from October 5th – 12th, is an eight-day convergence of groundbreaking films, distinguished speakers, and public forums designed to amplify diverse cultural expressions and celebrate community, convening multicultural, intergenerational audiences across southeastern Wisconsin through engaging events and compelling public conversations.

Offering a wide range of artistic and cultural experiences that promote collective expressions of joy, Cultures & Communities provides access to curated social spaces and platforms that support inclusive artistic and cultural creativity.

ABHM is partnering with the Cultures & Communities Festival on The Space Race, showing at the Oriental Theater on October 6th at 7 PM CT.

About the film: Milwaukee Film Festival alum Lisa Cortés (LITTLE RICHARD) joins forces with Diego Hurtado de Mendoza for this powerful and illuminating story behind the first Black astronauts. Featuring candid interviews with Ed Dwight, Guion Bluford, Charles Bolden, and Victor Glover, this film goes beyond the expected hero narrative to shed new light on our nation’s ongoing racial reckoning and attitudes toward space exploration and scientific discovery.

The event is finished.

Comments Are Welcome

Note: We moderate submissions in order to create a space for meaningful dialogue, a space where museum visitors – adults and youth –– can exchange informed, thoughtful, and relevant comments that add value to our exhibits.

Racial slurs, personal attacks, obscenity, profanity, and SHOUTING do not meet the above standard. Such comments are posted in the exhibit Hateful Speech.
