2nd Annual Black History Month Celebration
Shining A Spotlight on Women in Literature and Hollywood

Join us for the 2nd Annual Black History Month celebration that will once again shine a spotlight on women and girls of color in Hollywood and Media using literature as its entry point. The evening will feature dramatic readings from the works by New York Times best-selling authors, Virginia DeBerry and Donna Grant, along with the newest release of the novel, Blurred Lines, by Courtney Parker and Mona Scott Young. An empowering panel discussion will follow on the current state of women of color in Hollywood and Media. The panel will also highlight recent research studies by Baylor University as well as Creative Artists Agency and shift7. The former study found that movies starring women of color had strong staying power (which equals profitability) in movie theaters on an average of 20 weeks. The latter study looked at movies, from 2014 to 2017, and found that films with female leads earned more than their male-led counterparts. With all of the great successes and progress for women in 2018, there is still more work to do. We “Gotta Keep on Tryin!”
