HUGE THANKS for all who joined us yesterday at the Center for Civil and Human Rights for the In Our Own Voice Policy Brief on The State Of Black Women and Reproductive Justice.

SPARK invites you to a screening of Daughters Of The Dust, a Great Migration drama set in 1902 and celebrated today as a landmark film that showcases the significance of the Georgia-South Carolina Sea Islands in the construction of Southern culture.
Written and directed by Julie Dash, Daughters Of The Dust tells the story of a Gullah family’s struggle to maintain their roots while trying to transcend the phantasmic shackles of slavery that lingered beyond abolition. The film fell into anonymity since its release 25 years ago and has recently re-entered the zeitgeist after it served as the primary source material for Beyonce’s visual album, Lemonade.
Join us this THURSDAY 4/20/17 from 6:00pm-8:00pm at The Georgia State University’s Alliance for Sexual and Gender Diversity in room 467 of Student Center West, located at 141 Courtland Street SE, for a screening of Julie Dash’s Daughters Of The Dust and stick around for a discussion on black migrations as we sip on some lemonade and other seasonal refreshments.
