KCC Center for Diversity to host free screening of Disney’s “Moana” May 26

Character from Disney's "Moana."

The Center for Diversity and Innovation at Kellogg Community College will host a free community screening of the Disney movie “Moana” this week on campus in Battle Creek.

The CDI’s “Moana” Screening and Ancestry Creative Space will be held from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Friday, May 26, at KCC’s Binda Performing Arts Center, located on campus at 450 North Ave. The screening event, presented in partnership with Race Conscious Families BC, is family friendly, free and open to the public and will include dinner.

“Moana” is an Academy Award nominated animated feature released last fall about the young daughter of a Polynesian chief who embarks on an ocean adventure to save her people. The CDI called the feature an inspirational film depicting “a young person facing the challenges of choosing to remain in a familiar, comforting place, or to follow the calling she feels inside her.”

According to the CDI, the film reinforces the importance of our ancestors and their contributions to our lives today.

Immediately following the film, which will be shown with English subtitles, a creative space will be available for participants who wish to creatively explore their own curiosity as it relates to ancestry.

Please note: The KCC CDI seeks to be as inclusive as possible in all its events, and asks all guest to be fragrance-free.
