Zawadi Presents A Screening of Black./Womyn: Conversations with Lesbians of African Descent
Join us for a lunchtime film screening of «Black Womyn,» a documentary made by a former graduate student. Facilitated by Kerby Lynch (Black Lesbian Geographies), the discussion will focus on Black lesbian existence and its contribution to global liberation.
A little bit more about the film: «Black Womyn» features interviews with close to 50 out, Black lesbians including Poet/Author Cheryl Clarke, Filmmaker/Activist Aishah Shahidah Simmons, Poet/Author Staceyann Chin, Filmmaker Michelle Parkerson, Hip-Hop Duo KIN, and Author Fiona Zedde. This film encourages progressive dialogue about images of Black lesbians and the stereotypes resulting from their portrayal in media and society at large. The director's goal was to create conversation among Black lesbians of differing ages, backgrounds about the lack of communication among these groups and how this affects the overall unity of Black lesbians as a group.
