It was an honor to host the VIP Screening of Belle-- a film inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle! She was the illegitimate mixed race daughter of Admiral Sir John Lindsay who lived in the 1700's.

Part of the movie is based on a pioneering portrait that portrays a black female subject as "an equal" with a white aristocrat. She was raised by her great-uncle and his wife.
Her lineage affords her certain privileges, yet her status prevents her from the traditions of noble social standing. Belle shows something we have never seen before, the experiences of a black woman during Victorian Times. It is one of the most amazing aspects of this film! As a mixed race woman- it's refreshing to FINALLY see a movie like this!
Please--check out the preview below! I highly recommend this movie!
