Black Queer Brooklyn on Film

Various dates and times in June
This film series riffs on the contributions of the Combahee River Collective, a black lesbian feminist organization formed in 1974, and their Black Feminist Statement. It features new releases by young, black, queer, female-identified, and gender-nonconforming artists and filmmakers working in Brooklyn today. With work by Frances Bodomo, Dyani Douze, Ja’Tovia Gary, Reina Gossett, Lindsay Catherine Harris, Carrie Hawks, Taja Lindley, Tiona Nekkia McClodden, Nontsikelelo Mutiti, Chanelle Aponte Pearson, D’hana Perry, Naima Ramos-Chapman, Isabella Reyes, and Stefani Saintonge.
The series kicks off at June’s Target First Saturday and continues on subsequent Thursdays throughout the month. Free with Museum admission.
Presented in conjunction with the exhibition We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965–85.
