Thursdays in June: Black Queer Brooklyn on Film
Thursday, June 8, 2017
11 am–10 pm
Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, Forum, 4th Floor
On view every Thursday throughout June, this series presents new short films by young, black, queer, female-identified, and gender-nonconforming artists and filmmakers working in Brooklyn today.
The series riffs on the contributions of the Combahee River Collective, a black lesbian feminist organization formed in 1974, and their Black Feminist Statement, and is presented in conjunction with the exhibition We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965–85.
