As part of the Community Stories Festival, join us for a special screening and discussion of The Bridge. This event is being presented by Docs In Progress and Silver Spring Town Center, Inc.
This free program will feature a screening of Jay Mallin's 2017 film which provides a perspective on the Talbot Street Bridge, a historic but dangerously dilapidated one-lane bridge which is the remaining physical link for the history of an African-American community once isolated by segregation in Silver Spring, Maryland.
Following the screening, there will be a moderated panel discussion with the filmmaker and two of the people featured in the film, Charlotte Coffield and Patricia Tyson. There will also be an opportunity for audience members to meet each other and reflect on the film and their own experiences in Silver Spring past and present.
The Easter Seals building is located in downtown Silver Spring at 1420 Spring Street (the building at the corner of Spring and Second Avenue). It is three blocks walk up Second Avenue from the Silver Spring Metro. You can either park on Spring Street or Second Avenue (meters are free after 6 pm) or at the Cameron Street garage (.70 cents per hour if you park before 7 pm, free free from 7 pm on).
Enter the building at the main Spring Street entrance. The guard will direct you to the second floor conference room (accessible by stairs or elevator).
