SUPREME PRICE

Discount on Titles from the AFRICA IS A WOMAN'S NAME Special Collection

Director Joanna Lipper elegantly explores past and present in THE SUPREME PRICE as she tells the remarkable story of Hafsat Abiola, daughter of Nigeria's President M.K.O. Abiola who won a historic vote in 1993 that promised to end years of military dictatorship. Shortly after the election, Abiola was imprisoned and his victory annulled. His daughter, on the verge of graduating from Harvard, decided to return home and join her parents' struggle. The Abiola family's intimate story unfolds against the epic backdrop of Nigeria's evolution from independence in 1960 through present day as Hafsat continues to face the challenge of transforming a corrupt culture of governance into a democracy capable of serving Nigeria's most marginalized population: women.

FEMINIST

Special Offer: SAVE 50% on Select Titles with Purchase of FEMINIST: STORIES FROM WOMEN'S LIBERATION

Structured as a personal journey of rediscovery by filmmaker Jennifer Lee, FEMINIST: Stories From Women's Liberation brings the momentous first decade of second-wave feminism vividly to life. Its trajectory starts with the earliest stirrings in 1963 and ends with the movement's full blossoming in 1970-from the Presidential Commission's report on widespread discrimination against women and publication of Betty Friedan's Feminine Mystique up through radical feminists' takeover of the Statue of Liberty and Friedan's calls for a women's strike for equality. A great introduction to Women's Studies and critical viewing for historians and academics interested in feminism, activism and the Women's Movement. More

LIVING THINKERS

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.

Offer expires November 15, 2015. 


Illusions

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.
