Join National President Kimberly Jeffries Leonard, Ph.D., and Allison Davis for a spirited conversation with Lisa Simmons, national chair, Transforming Communities through Film, Boston (MA) Chapter.
From working as the program manager at the Mass Cultural Council to serving as the director of the Roxbury International Film Festival (RoxFilm) and The Color of Film Collaborative (TOCF), Simmons has worked tirelessly to elevate the voices and celebrate the stories of people of color around the world. During this Creative Links, she will discuss the importance of diversity and representation in visual arts, and why telling our stories is critical for our past, present, and future as people of color. Simmons will also share highlights from her current project, a feature-length documentary about the Boston Negro Theatre Unit.
We encourage you to invite students interested in film and media as well as STEM to join us for this blockbuster night of engaging conversation.
