Chaz And Roger Ebert to Be Honored Opening Night of the 20th Annual Black Harvest Film Festival in Chicago

null

The Black Harvest Film Festival in Chicago, which is celebrating

its 20th anniversary this year, will honor both Chaz Ebert and (posthumously) her late husband, film critic Robert

Ebert, on the opening night of the festival, set for Friday August 1st
.
They will be awarded with the annual Deloris Jordan Award

for Excellence in Community Leadership, which

is a fitting tribute for them for the 20th anniversary of the festival.

Both Roger and Chaz were enthusiastic supporters of the film festival, and continue to be, as well as long-established supporters of and

advocates for black filmmakers.

Previous recipients of the award have been actor/rapper

Common, and, last year, the internationally renowned installation and performance

artist, and public urban developer and theorist, Theaster Gates.
