Beti Ellerson

Beti Ellerson teaches visual culture courses in the Art History and Visual Culture Program at Howard University. She was producer/host of Reels of Colour, a 27-episode program about filmmaking by people of color televised locally in the Washington, D.C. area from 1997 to 2000. As a 1996-97 Rockefeller Humanities Fellow she conducted research on the cultural politics of African women in the visual media. The research culminated in the book, Sisters of the Screen: Women of African on Film Video, and Television (Africa World Press, 2000), which features most of the women in the documentary. Beti Ellerson has published several works on African and African Diasporan Visual Culture. (09/09)
