Q&A with Director Medhin Tewolde Serrano following the film.

At the age of seven, Filmmaker Medhin Tewolde Serrano recounts her first experience of being called Black by a stranger on the streets of Mexico, noting it as the first time becoming conscious of her racial identity and the prejudice that came along with it. Curious if her encounters were unique to herself, Serano began to seek out the experiences of other Black Women as well, highlighting the stories of five afro-descendant women from Mexico’s southern region. They are stories that expose racism, resistance through the processes of self-acceptance, strategies for transcending stereotypes, and, ultimately, the celebration of their identity.

(Not rated, 72 min., 2020)

Free admission. Presented as part of Colby Latin American Studies’ 11th Annual Walker Symposium.
