Most people are unfamiliar with the USS Mason, but the destroyer escort was the only vessel in the segregated, World War II Navy in which African-Americans had jobs other than as cooks and waiters. The crew was cited for their heroism, forty years later. The Black Heritage Foundation & Billings Public Library are sponsoring this series of programs.

The Black Heritage Foundation and Billings Public Library present a film series featuring Sidney Poitier. THEY CALL ME MISTER TIBBS! features Poitier in a role he originated in the film IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT. When a prostitute is murdered in San Francisco's ritzy Nob Hill district, an anonymous tip implicates minister and political crusader Reverend Logan Sharpe (Landau). Lt. Virgil Tibbs (Poitier), who has known Sharpe for many years, asks to be assigned to the case in hopes of clearing his friend's name. So begins the detective's journey through a twisted maze of baffling evidence, frantic chases, deadly gunfire and bad alibis. Before long, Tibbs finds himself bitterly torn between his duty as a cop...and his loyalty to a friend.
