Few Celebrities have covered JPC’s Ebony Magazine and Jet Magazine as frequently and fashionably as the iconic, Diana Ross.

For this installment of Arts Bank Cinema, we will be screening, Mahogany.

In this 1975 romantic drama, Diana Ross plays Tracy Chambers, a struggling fashion design student that enters a new world of fashion. Following the screening, we will dive deep into a conversation about: the iconic life and career of Diana Ross, her contributions to pop culture, her relationship to Ebony and Jet Magazine, Ms. Ross’ fashion and most exclusively, Eunice Johnson’s Ebony Fashion Fair.

The Johnson Lounge will open to the public at 7:00pm with a bar and a Diana Ross curated set. Showtime will begin exactly at 7:45pm.
