Through A Black Woman’s Lens

A six-part virtual panel series examining the world of Broadway, Hollywood, Business, Literature, Spirituality, Sexuality, Academia and Misogynoir through a Black Woman’s perspective

Black women are the educators, the providers and the defenders of our community, but we are often left out of the narrative of our own stories. Tonya Pinkins (writer, director, and producer of the socio-political horror film, RED PILL) HowlRound and Crystal Chase have partnered to create a 6-part series with some America’s leading Black women from the world of literature, film, academia, theater, tech and business to discuss and take a deeper look into the Black Woman’s lens and perspective on the world that we live in. We will discuss what scares us, why we are not heard, seen or understood and what changes need to be made to protect our hearts, minds, bodies and soul. We will provide an outline of how as Black women we can pivot, center our stories, and tell the world who we are, what we are doing and how the rest of the global society can get on board.
