Telling Tales Out of School
Directed by Woodie King, Jr.
June, 1954, a memorial service for Alain Locke, architect of the Harlem Renaissance, is held at Benta’s Funeral Home in Harlem. Among the attendees are Zora Neale Hurston, Nella Larsen, Jesse Fauset and Nancy Cunard. Now in their sixties and not having seen one another in over twenty years, they gather at the Hotel Theresa after the funeral. An afternoon of boundless praise of Locke over tea unravels into disturbing revelations about the great man and the four women who have come to honor him.
