Free virtual event: Women Remaking America: PSEG True Diversity Film Series

New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) will present a free virtual screening and panel discussion for “Not Done: Women Remaking America,” the next PSEG True Diversity Film Series.

The panel will be moderated by Dr. Melissa Cooper, assistant history professor at Rutgers University-Newark and author of “Making Gullah: A History of Sapelo Islanders, Race, and the American Imagination.”

#MeToo. Time’s Up. The Women’s March. Black Lives Matter. Everywhere you look, women are changing the status quo—and we’re far from finished. The Emmy-nominated PBS documentary Not Done charts the last five years of the women’s movement and its re-energized, intersectional fight 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 the selected films at home, then come together with others online to discuss them with panelists who can offer context.
