Come see this award-winning adaptation of Aesop’s fable “Hare and Tortoise." The traditional moral we know is “slow and steady wins the race," but in this fresh retelling, the playwright includes an ongoing relationship between the two characters, and we discover lessons about patience, accepting others for who they are and what it means to be a true friend. Families, ages 3 and older.

The often crushing yet invisible struggles of young African-American men come vividly — and heroically — to life in this month's documentary feature "All the Difference," which traces the paths of two teens from the South Side of Chicago who dared to dream a seemingly impossible dream: to graduate from college. Oscar-nominated producer/director Tod Lending's intimate film, executive produced by author Wes Moore, follows the young men through five years of hard work, sacrifice, setbacks and uncertainty. A discussion will be hosted afterwards with special guests Verna Laboy, co-founder of the Worley Street Roundtable, and Lorenzo Lawson, Executive Director of the Youth Empowerment Zone. Shown in collaboration with POV, PBS’ award-winning nonfiction film series (www.pbs.org/pov). Watch the trailer at www.dbrl.org/films. (2016, not rated, 83 minutes) Adults and teens.
