Little Rock, Arkansas's, West 9th Street was once a vibrant, African-American business and entertainment district. Taborian Hall is the only remaining historic structure on West 9th Street and stands as a living witness of the street's former glory days. Throughout the 1920s and 1930s, Taborian Hall housed varied and important black businesses, including professional offices, a USO, the Gem Pharmacy and the Dreamland Ballroom. By the 1930s, Dreamland was firmly established as a stop on the "Chitlin Circuit," which showcased regional and national African-American bands and stage shows. It was also host to local musicians, dances, socials, concerts and sporting events.

Arkansas Cinema Society teams up with the Northwest Arkansas-based Micheaux Award and Film Labs to host public events and workshops for creatives of color in central Arkansas. The weekend includes a screening of Dream Land followed by a Q+A with the producer, a workshop that will provide hands-on education from working filmmakers, and the Networking Social featuring wine from the Flyght Black collection.
