Panel Discussion, Special Event



In partnership with the Over-the-Rhine International Film Festival, organized by LADD, the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center is hosting a screening of the film Black Cop, written and directed by Cory Bowles, followed by a panel discussion with community leaders and Cincinnati police on the 20th anniversary of the City of Cincinnati and Police Collaborative Agreement.

It’s not easy being a Black cop. Black Cop tells the story of a Black officer already struggling between duty and moral obligation, a struggle made worse when he’s profiled by his colleagues off duty, nearly getting himself killed in the process – and pushing him over the edge. Armed with the power of his badge, an antagonizing radio show for company and some good old-fashioned rage, the stage is set for a whirlwind vendetta as the Black cop targets the very community that justifies his colleagues and puts him on a collision course with his own identity.

Written and directed by Cory Bowles
