"Let's Go to the Movies" group meets at Women's Center
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- "Let's Go to the Movies!", a new
group offered by the Women's Resource and Action Center at the University
of Iowa, is meeting now through March 11.
The group gathers to watch classic movies, as well as movies released
within the past eight years, which portray African American women. After
watching the films, the group holds discussion sessions that focus on the
images of African American women and how these images are portrayed in
these movies. "This is an important group because it gives women
of diverse backgrounds an opportunity to learn and discuss how African-American
women have been portrayed in Black movies," explains Kia-Rai, facilitator
of the group.
For more information or to register for the group, call the Women's
Center at 335-1486.
