CRANBERRY LAKE – The Clifton Community Library, 7171 State Highway 3, is hosting two film screenings in honor of Black History Month.

The film “Loving,” starring Ruth Negga and Joel Edgerton, will be screened on Feb. 10. The movie tells the true story of Richard and Mildred Loving, a Virginia couple whose arrest for interracial marriage went all the way to the Supreme Court.

The library will serve chicken and waffles prepared by local gourmand George Cherepon, a former magistrate and man about town.

The film “Hidden Figures” will be shown on Feb. 24. The movie stars Taraji P. Henderson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monae as three African-American female mathemeticians at NASA who helped launch John Glenn into space, among other notable achievements.

The library will serve ham and cornbread courtesy of the Stone Manor in Cranberry Lake.

Admission to the movies is free. They will start at 11 a.m. in the community room in the library.

Suggested donation for the food sampling is $3.
