Black Quaker Project Film Festival

  • February 12, 2022
  • 1:00 PM
  • via Zoom

On Saturday, February 12, at 1:00 p.m., the Black Quaker Project is sponsoring a screening of “I Am A Woman - Leap of Faith: Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge” (2012). This is to honor Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge (b. 1952), the Quaker United Nations Office (QUNO) Geneva Director, former South African Deputy Minister of Health, and former South African Deputy Minister of Defense. It will be followed by a discussion between the honoree and AFSC General Secretary Joyce Ajlouny.

This is a 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.

The five film sessions will take place every other Saturday on Zoom at 1:00 p.m. from February 12 until Paul Robeson’s birthday on April 9. Each session will include a film centered on a Quaker of Color with an introduction from a guest expert and a follow up discussion facilitated by Black Quaker Project Director Dr. Harold D. (Hal) Weaver.

  • On February 26, it will be “Backs Against the Wall: The Howard Thurman Story” (2019)
  • On March 12, “Alaska on Line: Red Boucher Interviews Mahala Ashley Dickerson”
  • On March 26, “Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin” (2003)
  • On April 9, “Paul Robeson and His Quaker Ancestors” (1989)
