Special Offer: SAVE 50% on Select Titles with Purchase of LIVING THINKERS

LIVING THINKERS: AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF BLACK WOMEN IN THE IVORY TOWER examines the intersection of race, class and gender for Black women professors and administrators working in U.S. colleges and universities today. Though more than 100 years have passed since the doors to higher education opened for Black women, their numbers as faculty members are woefully low and for many still, the image of Black women as intellectuals is incomprehensible. And while overtly expressed racism, sexism and discrimination have declined, their presence is often still often unacknowledged.

Through frank and sometimes humorous conversations, this documentary interrogates notions of education for girls and women and the stereotypes and traditions that affect the status of Black women both in and out of the Academy. 

Special Offer - In light of the recent events in Ferguson, MO and elsewhere in the country, we are highlighting some of our best titles on race, gender and class in America from our collection. Get 50% off select titles when you purchase LIVING THINKERS at list price. Details.


Special Offer on Remastered ILLUSIONS and A JURY OF HER PEERS

From Julie Dash, director of the critically acclaimed DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST comes this highly anticipated re-release of ILLUSIONS. Now you can enjoy, and teach, this film at the best quality. Perfect for institutions & libraries focused on cinema studies, African American Studies, and film history. 

The time is 1942, a year after Pearl Harbor; the place is National Studios, a fictitious Hollywood motion picture studio. Mignon Duprée, a Black woman studio executive who appears to be white and Ester Jeeter, an African American woman who is the singing voice for a white Hollywood star are forced to come to grips with a society that perpetuates false images as status quo. This highly-acclaimed drama by one of the leading African American women directors follows Mignon's dilemma, Ester's struggle and the use of cinema in wartime Hollywood: three illusions in conflict with reality. 

Special Offer! purchase both remastered editions of ILLUSIONS and Sally Heckel's classic A JURY OF HER PEERS and get 25% off your entire order. Learn more.

Offer expires November 1, 2014.
