The BlackQuaker Film Festival – Feb 12

Posted by The BlackQuaker Project on February 8, 2022

We are thrilled to announce the Black Quaker Lives Matter Film Festival, a first-of-its-kind film festival that endeavors to educate all about the importance of Quakers of Color who for too long have remained within the margins of the Society of Friends and the wider world. From February 12, 2022, during Black History Month, until Paul Robeson’s birthday on April 9, 2022 we will screen a film centered on a Quaker of Color with an introduction from a guest expert and a follow up discussion facilitated by BQP Director Dr. Harold D. (Hal) Weaver. Screenings will take place every other Saturday on Zoom at 1pm ET.

On Saturday, February 12, 2022, we will screen I Am A Woman – Leap of Faith: Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge (2012), which honors Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge (b. 1952): Quaker United Nations Office (QUNO)-Geneva Director, former South African Deputy Minister of Health, and former South African Deputy Minister of Defense. It also features a discussion between the honoree and AFSC General Secretary Joyce Ajiouny.
