The first wide scale release from a black female filmmaker, Daughters of the Dust (1991) is a turn-of-the-century period piece set in a Gullah community off the coast of South Carolina. It follows a family who considers leaving the island for the mainland, but they fear losing the cultural heritage they’ve maintained from their African ancestors for many generations. Filmmaker and University of Toledo professor Charlene Gilbert will introduce this groundbreaking film.
