Mayor Sylvester Turner joins a very long list of Houstonians who have selected a favorite flick to screen at MFAH. He'll be in attendance Monday night to introduce this 1961 film about an African-American family in Chicago in search of the American dream, in spite of experiencing resistance from their white neighbors. Director Daniel Petrie was recognized at Cannes, but it's the words of playwright and screenwriter Lorraine Hansberry that ensures a place in history for this classic gem. Stars Sidney Poitier as the ambitious son and Claudia McNeil as the widow who wants to relocate.
