Experience a cheerful visual poem of belonging and self-worth, then build on the film with a fun activity.

The Bullock Museum is pleased to present the sixth annual Summer Family Film Series–virtual edition.

Watch an iconographic video presentation of Samara Cole Doyon’s book, Magnificent Homespun Brown at your leisure via the Austin Public Library’s streaming service partner. If you’re looking for connecting books to indulge in, look no further than this list, specially curated by Austin Public Library’s Youth Engagement Staff.

What special person, place, or memory makes you feel like you belong? Using that as inspiration, let’s create beautiful pen drawings and wash them in watercolor in the same style of Kaylani Juanita’s gorgeous Magnificent Homespun Brown illustrations. Let’s celebrate all the treasures, places, and people you love that make you, uniquely you! Inspiration for this program comes from the Bullock Museum’s current exhibition, Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow.
