The New York Public Library’s Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture is hosting a virtual screening of UNLADYLIKE2020, in partnership with New York’s public television station WNET. As part of its Ella Baker Initiative honoring women of color in the fight for suffrage and civil rights, the Schomburg will screen our shorts about civil rights leaders Mary Church Terrell and Charlotta Spears Bass, followed by a panel discussion and audience Q&A.
The discussion, moderated by Jenna Flanagan of MetroFocus, will focus on the legacies of these groundbreaking women and underscore the importance of continued activism. Panelists will include: UNLADYLIKE2020 Executive Producer Sandy Rattley; Vice Chair of the Board of Directors of the NAACP, Karen Boykin-Towns; the 20 year old president of Black Lives Matter in Greater New York, Nupol Kiazolu; and Professor of Women and Gender Studies at Ohio State University, Treva Lindsey.
