Celebrating Women’s Experiences through Film – Daughters of the Dust

CLUBSMinority Students in Action, Forty Plus and Fabulous, ESC Ed for All, and The Black Male Initiative are collaborating to bring a series of movie nights recognizing the diverse experiences of women.  The first film will be Daughters of the Dust, written and directed by African-American filmmaker Julie Dash.   The film takes a look at the Gullah culture of North Carolina, which is rich with traditions from enslaved Africans brought to the Island.  The independent film is also the first theatrically released film by an African-American woman.

After the film, there will be a analytical discussion open to the audience.
