About this event:
WHAT: A screening and discussion on themes and commentary of Beyoncé’s Lemonade
SO WHAT: The landmark visual album Lemonade (Beyoncé, 2016) draws inspiration from the evocative imagery of Julie Dash, Arthur Jafa and Carrie Mae Weems, and the haunting poetry of Warsan Shire, to protest the invisibility of Black women. Lemonade offers a radical, but complicated, revisioning of Black female bodies and struggles. The screening of Lemonade will be followed by conversation with filmmaker Julie Dash, singer/songwriter/poet Jamila Woods, and UChicago film scholar/Cinema 53 curator Jacqueline Stewart.
