Community Screening: Young Love

Episode 1: “Self Love” (24m)
Episode 2: “Just Love” (22m)

Expanding on the groundbreaking Academy Award®-winning short Hair Love, Young Love gives an honest, heartfelt, and comedic glimpse into the lives of African-American millennial parents Stephen Love (Scott “Kid Cudi” Mescudi) and Angela Young (Issa Rae) as they experience the relatable ups and downs of modern life. In remission following a battle with cancer, Angela struggles to balance her work as a stylist with the demands of parenthood, while Stephen attempts to carve out a career as a musician in an ultra-competitive industry.

Along with their fearless daughter Zuri (Brooke Monroe Conaway), this tight-knit Chicago family juggles careers, marriage, parenthood, social issues, and multi-generational dynamics, all while striving to make a better life for themselves.
