C. Fitz’s documentary JEWEL’S CATCH ONE celebrates the first club for African-American gay and lesbian people in Los Angeles. Businesswoman, activist, and healer Jewel Thais-Williams ran the club on Pico for over forty years, from 1973 to 2015.
As part of Dirty Looks on Location 2018, curators Raquel Gutiérrez and Suzy Halajian will present the film, as well as a program including Cole Jupiter James’ POSTURE IN PREPARATION, which “explores the concepts of race, gender and class through video and language.”*
JEWEL’S CATCH ONE, Monday, July 9, at 9 pm.
UNION (formerly Jewel’s Catch One), 4067 West Pico Boulevard, Los Angeles.
