Regrettably, Danny Glover has cancelled his trip to Indiana on September 17 due to unforeseen circumstances regarding his filming schedule.
His visit was to include an appearance at The Good Catholic premiere at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater and two events at IU Cinema. Mr. Glover is incredibly disappointed to miss another chance to meet Bloomington fans and to engage with the good work of the Black Film Center/Archive, IU Cinema, and the Buskirk-Chumley Theater.
All events will continue as scheduled except for his 1:00 p.m. on-stage conversation at IU Cinema, which has been cancelled. Mr. Glover hopes to return to Bloomington at a future date.
For questions regarding The Good Catholic premiere, please contact the BCT Box Office at (812) 323-3020. For inquiries regarding the IU campus events, please contact IU Cinema at firstname.lastname@example.org or 812-855-7632.
Danny Glover first toured the BFC/A and its collections in January 2016, where he immediately connected with its director and said, “I’m going to come back.” The BFC/A was established in 1981 as the first archival repository dedicated to collecting, preserving, and making available historically and culturally significant films by and about Black people.
Off screen, Glover is known worldwide for his community activism and humanitarian efforts. He is the recipient of countless awards for his efforts on behalf of economic and social justice causes, as well as being a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador and recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from Amnesty International. Political activism has resonated with Glover since the late 1960s, and it became a source of inspiration for his acting: “It’s kind of been my moral guide in terms of what I’ve been able to do. I feel that the work I do has value to it; therefore, it connects to my sense of myself as a citizen and as an artist as well … before I was an actor or an artist I was a citizen, and I remained a citizen.”
