When Pearl Fryar and his wife sought to buy a house in an all-white neighborhood of Bishopville, SC, they were dissuaded with the explanation that Black people don't keep up their yards.  Remarkably, instead of fueling bitterness and anger, this comment motivated Pearl to win Bishopville's Yard of the Month award and, eventually, to transform his ordinary suburban yard into a horticultural wonderland.  The film traces Pearl's journey from a small town sharecropper's son to an internationally-acclaimed artist, focusing in particular on his position as the celebrated cultural and spiritual icon of his impoverished town.  
Healthy potluck starts at 6:45.  Film starts promptly at 7pm.
