Recognized as one of the founding works of African cinema, Ousmane Sembène's Black Girl follows a young Senegalese woman as she journeys to France for work and a life worthy of her. This stirring 1966 classic will serve as entry into candid dialogue about images of black femininity post-colonialism. A conversation will follow the screening with special guests director Euzhan Palcy, actress Aisha Hinds, director and actress Salli Richardson-Whitfield, and actress Jurnee Smollett-Bell, moderated by journalist Britni Danielle.

Tickets to this program include same-night access before the program to The Broad, starting at 5:30 p.m.
