As part of the Rock My Soul festival, curator Julia Bullock presents two films by legendary L.A. Rebellion filmmaker Barbara McCullough, Water Ritual #1: An Urban Rite of Purification (1979) and Shopping Bag Spirits and Freeway Fetishes: Reflections on Ritual Space (1981). In Water Ritual #1, McCullough, in collaboration with performer Yolanda Vidato, examines Black women’s ongoing struggle for spiritual and psychological space through improvisational, symbolic acts. The film was made in an area in Watts that had been cleared to make way for the I-105 freeway but was ultimately abandoned. For Shopping Bag Spirits and Freeway Fetishes: Reflections on Ritual Space, McCullough conversed with other L.A.-based Black artists about the role of ritual in Black life and creative practice.

This event will be taking place in person at the California African American Museum on Thursday, November 17, 2022, at 7 pm. For more information check the link: http://bit.ly/3hu2aJJ!

With the NYC Premiere of MAMA BEARS, a documentary by Daresha Kyi this October 21st at NewFest, we are lucky to have the filmmaker join us to talk about the making of this film.

Join us at this in-person event as Daresha Kyi shows some clips and talks about the journey to make this new film, and her long directing and producing career. The event will be in Room 291, Shepard Hall, The City College of New York. Light refreshments will be served.

Spread across the country but connected through private Facebook groups, over 30,000 mothers in America—many from conservative, Christian backgrounds—fully accept their LGBTQ+ children. And they call themselves "mama bears" because while their love is warm and fuzzy, they fight ferociously to make the world kinder and safer for all LGBTQ+ people. MAMA BEARS explores the journeys of two mama bears and a young le***an whose struggle for self-acceptance exemplifies why the mama bears movement is vitally important.

MAMA BEARS is an intimate, thought-provoking exploration of the journeys
taken by Sara Cunningham and Kimberly Shappley, two “mama bears” —whose profound love for their LGBTQ children has turned them into fierce advocates for the entire q***r community — and Tammi Terrell Morris, a young African American le***an whose struggle for self-acceptance perfectly exemplifies why the mama bears are so vitally important.

This event is sponsored by Third World Newsreel and the Documentary Forum at CCNY and cosponsored by the LGBTQ+ Student Center at City College.

This event is on The City College of New York campus. Notice for non-City College attendees: All guests visiting the CCNY campus must be registered in order to enter the campus buildings.

Plague at the Golden Gate: Trailer | American Experience | PBS

More than 100 years before the COVID-19 pandemic shut down the world and set off a wave of fear and anti-Asian sentiment, an outbreak of bubonic plague in San Francisco’s Chinatown in 1900 unleashed a similar furor. It was the first time in history that civilization’s most feared disease — the infamous Black Death — made it to North America. The gripping story of the desperate race against time to save San Francisco and the nation from the deadly disease, PLAGUE AT THE GOLDEN GATE at the Golden Gate is based in part on David K. Randall’s critically acclaimed book, Black Death at the Golden Gate.

Directed by Li-Shin Yu, who will be joining us tomorrow, Wednesday, September 28, 6:30 PM for a virtual talk about this new PBS film.

Dear Friends and Colleagues,
My Name is Siwaporn (Apple) and I am the owner of Apple Model Management (www.applemodels.com) located in Bangkok Thailand.
My company has been a human rights activist and big supporter of LGBTQ in Thailand and around the world for the past two decades and in 2014 made history when we launched the first ever TRANSGENDER model division in the world and were featured in over 200 publications around the world including major ones such as the BBC, Huffington Post, The Advocate, Elle Magazine, Vogue Magazine, Vice (documentary) and others.
With Covid-19 and the closure of the borders in Thailand we were hit quite hard and started a fund-raising campaign to keep the lights on and save the agency from closing down.
We are in desperate need of your help to share our campaign on your social media channels and help us spread the news.
Please take a look at the campaign: https://fundrazr.com/Apple-Models
Any help circulating it from your side will be highly appreciated.
