Following the screening of an episode of the program that takes on the tense and tender ties between Africans and African-Americans, Carina Ray, associate professor of African and Afro-American Studies, will interview Amarteifio.

LOOKING BACK, LOOKING FORWARD
A symposium celebrating the Lilith magazine archives and Jewish feminist collections at Brandeis University
March 26 – 27, 2017
Kindly R.S.V.P. to Erin Warnke (firstname.lastname@example.org) by March 22
Join us as we look at Lilith’s “independent, Jewish & frankly feminist” history in the context of 40 years of its archives—manuscripts, photographs, letters, cover art, notes, drafts, and much more, spanning approximately 70 linear feet and forming a cornerstone of Jewish feminist archival collections in the Brandeis Library.
Sunday afternoon will feature a panel of writers and activists discussing themes Lilith has explored in over four decades of feminist transformation, with a reception to follow.
Monday will include a special conversation in the archives with Lilith’s editor in chief.
