Producer Oge Egbuonu’s feature documentary (In)Visible Portraits is here and amplifies the history of Black women in America.
Released to coincide with Juneteenth, (In)Visible Portraits complies several interviews from Black American female scholars, who share their stories of survival, struggle and triumph and reclaim their narratives. The documentary focuses on history’s egregious erasure and otherizing of Black American women.
The documentary features interviews from Joy Degruy, author of Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: America’s Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing, University of Maryland sociology professor Dr. Patricia Hill Collins, Princeton University professor and Race After Technology: Abolitionist Tools for the New Jim Code author Dr. Ruha Benjamin, and Dr. Melina Abdullah, professor of Pan-African Studies at California State University Los Angeles and Co-Founder of BLMLA.
