GETTYSBURG, Pa. – ­ A filmmaker will show and discuss his documentary, “What Black Men Think,” March 12 at Gettysburg College. 

The 6 p.m. showing and discussion will take place in McCreary Hall, Bowen Auditorium. “What Black Men Think” is a documentary of Janks Morton’s examination of the role that myths, stereotypes and misperceptions have played in the decimation of black relationships, and how the government, media and special interests perpetuates misinformation to marginalize the role of black men in society.

Born in Cincinnati, Morton became passionate about black history and the achievements and challenges of his ancestry when he moved to Washington, D.C. He is the founder of iYago Entertainment Group, a multimedia production company; established Give Us Free Productions, a commercial production company that produces independent documentary, motion pictures and videos for distribution; and serves as executive vice president for Jynxdacat Productions, a music production company. Morton has been in the entertainment industry for more than 20 years.

Gettysburg College is a highly selective four-year residential college of liberal arts and sciences with approximately 2,600 students. It is located on a 200-acre campus adjacent to Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania. The college was founded in 1832.
