CITY OF REFUGE UCC FILLS A THEATER FOR A BLACK PANTHER PRE-SCREENING On Thursday, February 15th, City of Refuge United Church of Christ congregation and friends attended a pre-screening of The Black Panther at the Regal Cinemas in Dublin, California. This exciting event was made possible by one of our ministers, Joi Rhone, who is also an event and artist producer (Joi Rhone Presents). The joy and pride was palpable as we collectively filled 100 seats and took in the full spectrum (beauty and pain) of life in Wakanda and Oakland, CA. For more information, please follow up with Min. Joi Rhone at email@example.com . As the saying goes, "we were deep up in that place" as the photos below show.
