Synopsis

Jimmie Fails dreams of reclaiming the Victorian home his grandfather built in the heart of San Francisco. Joined on his quest by his best friend Mont, Jimmie searches for belonging in a rapidly changing city that seems to have left them behind. As he struggles to reconnect with his family and reconstruct the community he longs for, his hopes blind him to the reality of his situation.

A wistful odyssey populated by skaters, squatters, street preachers, playwrights, and other locals on the margins, The Last Black Man in San Francisco is a poignant and sweeping story of hometowns and how they’re made—and kept alive—by the people who love them.

Running Time: 121 minutes

Rating: R

Why is The Last Black Man in San Francisco rated R?

The Last Black Man in San Francisco is rated R by the MPAA for language, brief nudity and drug use.

Violence: Two characters shove each other. One character is shot offscreen. No actual violence is shown.

MLK Week

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Week


This event is part of MLK Week (January 15 – 21, 2022).

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Week (MLK Week) is a platform to engage students, faculty, staff, trainees, and community members in critical conversations around contemporary Civil Rights issues and race in America. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke of the “beloved community” as a nonviolent, just society where love and trust triumph over fear and hatred. In a year that has been filled with division, the 2022 MLK Week planning committee chose “Becoming the Beloved Community” as this year’s theme so we may explore ways to bridge the divide and work together to become the beloved community. Events and conversations throughout the week will honor Dr. King’s vision, offer direction, and challenge us to determine a better way forward.
