Free Virtual Event: Women overhaul of America: PSEG True Diversity Film Series


New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) will present a free virtual projection and a roundtable “Not Done: Women Remaking America”, the next film series PSEG true diversity.

The panel will be moderated by Dr. Melissa Cooper, assistant professor of history at Rutgers University in Newark and author of “Making Gullah: A History of Sapelo Islanders Race and the American Imagination”.

#Me too. Time is up. Women’s march. Black lives matter. Everywhere you look, women are changing the status quo and we are far from finished. The Emmy-nominated PBS documentary charts the past five years of the women’s movement and its reinvigorated struggle for intersectional equality.

It features new interviews of the first lines of the tidal wave feminist, with Tarana Burke, Shonda Rhimes, Gloria Steinem, Kimberlé Crenshaw, Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza Joey Soloway and Tina Tchen.

NJPAC’s PSEG True Diversity film series focuses on films that examine different aspects of the ongoing social justice movement. The series follows a book club model: watch the films selected for the house, then get together with others online to chat with the panelists that can provide context.
