The Yoruba Richen talk compares shared strategies used by the interconnected gay rights and civil rights movements. As the Yoruba Richen talk explains, the documentary film maker was inspired by the competing social movements and made a movie about the topic. The director and producer's latest film, The New Black, recently premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival and won audience awards at AFI Docs, Philly Q Fest and Frameline LGBT Film Festival. The speaker's previous award-winning work includes Promised Land, Sisters of the Good Death and Take it From Me.
In addition to being a film maker herself, the Guggenheim fellow also teaches documentary film as a professor at CUNY Graduate School of Journalism.
