Black France on Film
The summer film series “Black France on Film” is organized by the Black France Consortium. On Wednesday evenings throughout July 2023, following the film projection, invited scholars, filmmakers, and leading public intellectuals will help animate a discussion on the cinematic representation of Black French experiences from the early twentieth century to the contemporary moment.
Black France Consortium
With an inaugural partnership among Dartmouth College, Columbia, Northeastern and Yale universities, the Black France Consortium is an inter-university initiative dedicated to foregrounding Black French Studies within a myriad of spaces and national contexts.
For nearly sixty years, Columbia University students and faculty have come to study, teach, or pursue their research at Reid Hall, an exceptional space in the world of international education and cultural exchange. Our public events draw on the rich resources of the Columbia campus and our local partners, creating a "third space" of intellectual exploration and research that resists easy categorization. Our workshops, lectures, and performances bring together a diverse audience to address pressing issues through creative, rigorous, and open dialogue.
