Feb 15th 5:30-7 p.m. BLACK MIRROR AND BLACK FEMINIST FUTURES OR LETICIA WRIGHT’S WRONGS. This talk, with guest speaker Moya Bailey, takes a look back at the “Black Museum” episode of the popular pre-pandemic technodystopian SciFi series Black Mirror, to ask: is this a Black feminist text, and does it make a difference if the actor in the role is not a feminist? Examining the filmography of Leticia Wright in contrast with her conservative Christian views, this talk endeavors to think through the messiness of the feminist potential of performance even in spite of oneself. Moderated by Apryl Williams, assistant professor of communication and media and the Digital Studies Institute.
