Black Quaker Project Film Festival

  • April 09, 2022
  • 1:00 PM
  • via Zoom

The Black Quaker Film Festival 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. Two films were shown in February; there will be three more in the series at 1:00 p.m.

The five film sessions are taking 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 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)
