Screening: Cleopatra Jones

Thursday, May 30 at 7:00pm

Join us for a discussion and screening of Jack Starrett's Cleopatra Jones, a Blaxploitation film starring Tamara Dobson. The film reflexively deals with themes of feminism, sexuality, race, and pop culture during a transitional time in the 1970’s, a social climate that witnessed the rise of both second-wave feminism and the Black Power movement. In this film, Dobson takes the role of the first black superheroine in the genre — a striking, fierce and fashion- conscious spy who travels the world on a mission to cut off illicit supplies at their source. This screening will also feature an introduction and discussion with a guest scholar. Visit henryart.org for updates.
