Elena Featherston

Jacqueline Elaine (Elena) Featherston is an educator, writer, filmmaker, and self-described “visionary hellraiser” who challenges inequity on interconnected cultural fronts.

Featherston is the producer and director of "Alice Walker: Visions of the Spirit," an award-winning documentary film about the Pulitzer prize-winning author. Featherston is also the editor of the groundbreaking anthology Skin Deep: Women Writing on Color, Culture and Identity (Crossing Press) and her writings have appeared in numerous magazines, journals, and the book Identifying Race and Transforming Whiteness in the Classroom (V. Lean and J. Helfand, Peter Lange Publishers, 2004).

A former adjunct professor at New College of San Francisco, Featherston now divides her time between speaking, consulting, training, and work on Weaving Change: A Guide to Personal and Political Transformation, a book that fuses art, politics and spirituality as critical tools for social change.
