Film Screening: “Kindred Spirits: Artists Hilda Wilkinson Brown and Lilian Thomas Burwell
September 28 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Cintia Cabib, independent video producer
Filmmaker Cintia Cabib will screen and discuss her new documentary Kindred Spirits: Artists Hilda Wilkinson Brown and Lilian Thomas Burwell. The film explores the lives and work of two accomplished but unsung African American women artists who lived and worked in Washington, D.C., during the era of segregation. Throughout this exploration of their art and careers, a third portrait will emerge of a segregated D.C. Denied the same access and opportunities as their white colleagues, black artists seized educational opportunities, became prominent faculty members of African American schools, and established their own venues to exhibit and publish their work.
