Become a role model for your child, join us for a free movie screening of “Courageous” this Friday, May 25th. “Courageous” offers a deeper look at the role of a father with laughter, joy and heartfelt wisdom. This blockbuster moves us to think about the importance of male involvement in our communities, and those who leave the theater do so with hope and a promise for the future.

This encore screening of Courageous will be shown at the Wealthy Theatre at starting at 6 p.m., and is free and open to families in the Central Zone neighborhood (pictured in green below). The event is sponsored by the I Believe I Become Male Involvement Action Team in partnership with LINC Community Revitalization, Inc.
