The New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) will present a free virtual screening and panel discussion for “Not Done: Women Remaking America,” the upcoming PSEG True Diversity film series.
The panel will be moderated by Dr. Melissa Cooper, assistant professor of history at Rutgers University in Newark and author of “Making Gullah: A History of Sapelo Islanders, Race, and the American Imagination.”
#Me too. Time is up. The women’s march. Black lives matter. Everywhere you look, women are changing the status quo and we’re far from done. The Emmy-nominated documentary Not Done traces the past five years of the women’s movement and its reinvigorated, intersectional struggle for equality.
It features new interviews from the front lines of the feminist tidal wave, with Tarana Burke, Shonda Rhimes, Gloria Steinem, Kimberlé Crenshaw, Patrisse Cullors, Alicia Garza, Joey Soloway and Tina Tchen.
NJPAC’s PSEG True Diversity film series focuses on films that examine different aspects of the ongoing social justice movement. The series follows a book club model: watch selected films at home, then meet with others online to discuss them with panelists who can offer context.
