Brooklyn Museum to Screen Black Queer Films Every Thursday in June

The screening series is presented in conjunction with the museum's We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965–85 exhibit

Every Thursday throughout June, the Brooklyn Museum will present a limited series, titled Black Queer Film in Brooklyn, featuring exclusively the work of "young, black, queer, female-identified, and gender-nonconforming artists and filmmakers working in Brooklyn today."

The screening series is presented in conjunction with the museum's We Wanted a Revolution: Black Radical Women, 1965–85 exhibit, which focuses on "the political, social, cultural, and aesthetic priorities of women of color during the emergence of second-wave feminism."
