    The Hickory Community Relations Council (CRC), in partnership with the Hickory Youth Council (YC) and Footcandle Film Society, will host a movie night to screen the documentary, “Purple Dreams,” on Monday, February 25, at 6:30 p.m. at the Drendel Auditorium at the SALT Block.  This event is free and open to the public.

    Directed by Joanne Hock, “Purple Dreams” follows the talented and driven students of Charlotte’s Northwest School of the Arts, as black youth stereotypes are turned upside-down.  A three-year journey serves as an inspirational window into the lives of inner-city, at-risk students who succeed at their passion, while embracing the transformative power of their arts education as they audition, rehearse, and perform the first ever full-length high school production of “The Color Purple.”

    The film was the winner of the Audience Favorite Award at the 2017 Footcandle Film Festival.

    Following the showing of the film, there will be a question and answer session.  The event will conclude with a dessert reception.

    Attendees to the event are also encouraged to bring canned soup to be donated to a local non-profit, PORCH (People Offering Relief from Community Hunger).
