Godfather Of Harlem: Special Screening And Forest Whitaker In Conversation With Whoopi Goldberg

Join Forest Whitaker, Academy Award-winning actor and executive producer, for a special finale screening of the third season of his hit series, Godfather of Harlem, followed by a conversation with the legendary Whoopi Goldberg, who has a recurring role on the series at the 92nd Street Y.

Based on a true story, Godfather of Harlem follows crime boss Bumpy Johnson (Whitaker) and his struggle for control over his neighborhood — battling the Cuban mob, the CIA, and his own demons — after returning home in the early 1960s following 11 years in prison. Prior to the screening, hear Whitaker and Goldberg discuss the gripping new season — the inspiration for the series, Whitaker’s remarkable character and transformation, stories from behind the scenes, and more. Godfather of Harlem is produced by ABC Signature.

Please note: Talk begins at 8-9 pm. Screening is 9-10 pm. Tickets begin at $25.

The 92nd Street Y is located at 1395 Lexington Ave. in Manhattan. Visit www.92ndNY.org or call 212-415-5500 for more information.
