7. Black Queer Brooklyn On Film

Every Thursday this June, Park Slope’s Brooklyn Museum, located at the edge of Prospect Park, will be presenting a set of new short films by queer, black, young, female-identifying artists. All together, the films run for 2 hours and 50 minutes, and they will be shown on a loop starting over at 11:00 AM, 4:oo PM, and 7:00 PM. Featured films include “black *enuf” by Carrie Hawks, which describes memories of searching for acceptance, and “This Ain’t a Eulogy” by Taja Lindley, which focuses on making a society where black lives matter.

The series borrows inspiration from the Combahee River Collective, a black lesbian organization founded in 1974, and is presented alongside the museum’s exhibit “We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women 1965-85,” which will be on view through September 17th.
