Shining a Light Film Series: Winnie (2017) Screening and Discussion
Join us for a screening of "Winnie" (2017) to be followed by a panel discussion featuring MSU graduate and undergraduate students.
Winnie Madikizela Mandela is one of the most misunderstood and intriguingly powerful contemporary female political figures. Her rise and seeming fall from grace, bear the hallmarks of epic tragedy.
About the Series:
In honor of Women's History Month, the African Studies Center, in collaboration with the Center for Gender in a Global Context, presents four films which shine a light on women in Africa and the African Diaspora.
This film series brings a critical eye to issues impacting women on a day-to-day basis, including leadership, justice and perseverance. By combining these films with critical analysis by experts within and beyond the MSU community, we hope to expand understandings of women throughout the Diaspora.
Sponsored by the African Studies Center, the Center for Gender in a Global Context, the History Department and African American and African Studies.
