Reflections Unheard: Black Women in Civil Rights

black women in civil rights

The TORCH Race and Resistance programme are hosting a film screening of 'Reflections Unheard: Black Women in Civil Rights'. Reflections Unheard is a feature-length documentary which focuses on black women’s marginalization between the Black Power and Feminist movements of the 1960s and 70s. It is the first and only film of its kind to focus exclusively on black women’s experiences and contributions during the Civil Rights era. Reflections Unheard has screened in various universities and festivals globally. The Film’s Director, Nevline Nnaji, has consistently hosted thought-provoking discussion panels, and talk-backs with audiences around the world, including a special event hosted by the U.S. Embassy in the Republic of Congo in conjunction with the 2016 Tazama Film Festival. The Black International Cinema Berlin Film Festival awarded Reflections Unheard with “Best Film on Matters Related to the Black/Marginalized Experience” in 2014.

Note: this event will be taking place at the St. Luke’s Chapel in front of the Radcliffe Humanities Building
