The Watermelon Woman

11:00am - 12:00pm

Directed by Cheryl Dunye in 1996, this narrative, documentary-esque explores the lack of representation of black lesbian women in history and the power of creating stories where these stories do not exist. The Watermelon Woman asks us to question gatekeeping, archiving, and "legitimate" histories.
