Living Thinkers: An Autobiography of Black Women in the Ivory Tower
(75 minutes) Though more than 100 years have passed since the doors to higher education opened for Black women, their numbers as faculty members are woefully low and for many, the image of Black women as intellectuals is still incomprehensible. Through frank and sometimes humorous conversations, this documentary interrogates notions of education for girls and women and the stereotypes and traditions that affect the status of Black women both in and out of the academy. A post-film discussion follows with Bonnie Thornton Dill, Dean of Arts and Humanities at the University of Maryland, College Park; Pamela Scott Johnson, Interim Dean of College of Liberal Arts at Morgan State; and Professor Kelly Brown Douglass of Goucher College. Moderated by Dr. Karsonya Whitehead, Assistant Professor of Communication at Loyola University Maryland.
