University of Pittsburgh Office of Child Development P.R.I.D.E program proudly presents a screening of 2017’s documentary film “Talking Black in America,” followed by a live panel discussion moderated by Aisha White, Ph.D., Director, The P.R.I.D.E. Program. Door Prizes and educational and community resources available to attendees. “Talking Black in America” is the first documentary feature ever on African-American Vernacular English and Varieties (AAVE). Filmed across the United States, this documentary is a revelation of language as legacy, identity and triumph over adversity. The creativity and resilience of people living through oppression, segregation and the fight for equality, and the powerful identity forged by a shared heritage are all expressed in the ways African Americans communicate.
