African American Social Group critiques film

Marie Milleage

Members of the African American Social Group Book Club met at the Roanoke CineMark to critique the film, The Light Between Oceans. A comparison was made to the book by the same name that was read and discussed earlier this year. The theme of several opposites presented itself in the plot and created suspense throughout the story. This is one film where the storyline did not deviate from the book. Reading the book or seeing the film was enjoyable and is highly recommended.

The social group invites all black residents to join us as we welcome new homeowners and enjoy dinner, fellowship, conversation and outside activities. Only one member of the family needs to be black. We hold gatherings at a resident’s home, in a restaurant, or at another venue.

We are not a club, religious or political organization and do not charge fees. For additional information about joining us, please contact Marie Milleage at
