The head of the N-double-A-C-P branch in Springfield, Illinois is critical of a decision by the C-E-O of a theater chain who won’t show a film about black college fraternities this week. The head of Kerasotes Theaters is afraid that showing “Stomp The Yard” would attract gang members. Tony Kerasotes says he didn’t make his decision based on race but was worried after a fight and shooting that took place during a screening of “Black Christmas,” a horror film that doesn’t feature blacks. The theater owner says he’s sure the film about a step-dance competition between schools would draw a gang audience. Springfield N-double-A-C-P leader Ken Page says he doubts the film would attract a gang audience and even if it did, it would be good because “Stomp The Yard” is a positive movie.
