Join us for a celebration of Ebony Fashion Fair at the Stony Island Arts Bank on Friday, September 28 at 6 p.m. We’ll exhibit gowns and posters from the annual fashion event launched in 1958 by Eunice Johnson, co-founder of Johnson Publishing Company, and demo the iconic cosmetics line that the show inspired. 

Following the exhibition, stick around for a special screening of Mahogany (PG). In this lush 1975 romantic drama, Diana Ross plays Tracy Chambers, a struggling fashion student whose world transforms when she enters the fashion industry. 

UPDATE: The screening of Mahogany will be indoors instead of outdoor due to the weather.
