Davis and her creative partner, visual artist Renée Cox, will be present for a two-day workshop organized around the expressly Black feminist themes of the film and of their individual work in other media. This program was developed by the Black Film Center/Archive and is made possible by a grant from the College of Arts & Humanitites Insitutute, and support from the College of Arts and Sciences; the Kinsey Institute; the Departments of American Studies, Gender Studies, English, and African American & African Diaspora Studies; the Creative Writing Program; and IU Cinema.
