Film director Mame-Fatou Niang gives a talk prior to the screening of the documentary Mariannes Noires. Stay for a Q&A after the film.

About the film:
Seven different French-born women of African descent confront their own unique identities and challenge the expectations of French society. While some came from great privilege, and others came from nothing at all, they each have attained a high level of success and influence, which they use to increase visibility for Black women in France. However, despite their power, their achievements, and their leadership, and no matter their class background or ancestral heritage, they all survive systemic inequality.
