The Los Angeles Visionaries Association (LAVA) presents a screening of "The Blacklisting of Hope Foye," a documentary on a 1940s singer and her encounters with the House Un-American Activities Committee. Foye herself will be on-hand for a Q&A to follow the screening.

From the website:

Discover the story of Hope Foye, a progressive young singer whose voice impressed legends such as Paul Robeson and W.E.B. Dubois. However, a subpeona to appear before the McCarren Committee in 1949 changed her life forever.

Check the LAVA website for more information.
