Whatever Happened to Interracial Love? A Conversation about Kathleen Collins Featured Event
Central Library, Dweck Center
Eisa Davis, Rashidah Ismaili, Emily Raboteau, and Sapphire read and discuss the never-before-published collection of stories from a brilliant yet little known African American artist and filmmaker, Kathleen Collins. Collins’s work seamlessly integrates the African-American experience in her characters’ lives, creating rich, devastatingly familiar, full-bodied men, women, and children who transcend the symbolic, penetrating both the reader’s head and heart. Kathleen Collins, who died in 1988 at age forty-six, was the first black woman to produce a feature length film.
