The Black Movie Classics Series is returning to the Gantt Center.


The next Medicare seminar is Oct. 14 at 1 p.m. during the screening of “Claudine,” starring Diahann Carroll and James Earl Jones.


The series, which is sponsored by UnitedHealthcare, promotes Medicare education through free viewings of classic black cinema, launched last year with more than 300 seniors participating. During the event, seniors receive information on how Medicare works, who is eligible and an explanation of Medicare Parts A, B, C and D.


Events included an educational seminar and classic film scheduled around the Charlotte area. The series kicked off at the Gantt Center and included such locations as Charlotte-area churches and community centers throughout the year. The series’ success in Charlotte has led to a program in Washington, D.C., according to organizers.


Charlotte area seniors and their caregivers are encouraged to attend.
