Event description
Join us for a screening of PROUD with Director Mary Pat Kelly to mark Black History Month

About this Event

The Consulate of Ireland is delighted to present a screening of PROUD: the true story of the crew of the USS MASON, who were the only African-American sailors to take a U.S. Navy warship into combat in World War II. The USS Mason was stationed in Northern Ireland and was used for convoy duty in the Battle of the Atlantic, but its crew was not awarded a letter of commendation for its duty until 1994, fifty years later.

We will be joined by the film's director, Mary Pat Kelly, as well as Captain Mikal Phillips, former Commanding Officer with the USS Mason, for a Q&A after the screening.
