The Revival: Women and the World

When: Wed., March 21, 6:30 p.m. 2018

The monthly Just Films series, highlighting recent films that deal with gender and offer intersectional perspectives, continues with Sekiya Dorsett’s The Revival: Women and the World. The 2016 documentary chronicles the salon-style tour of a group of black lesbian poets and writers, as they seek to build community among queer women of color. The tour was organized by Jade Foster who was frustrated by the lack of outlets for poets, who didn’t fit into “traditional” slots, and sought more engaging and inclusive forums. Among those interviewed in the film are Dr. Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Nikky Finney and Alexis De Veaux. The screening will be followed by a discussion. -Al Hoff
