The Rape Documentary (Aishah Shahidah Simmons,2006) Award-winning feature length documentary by writer, director and activist, Aishah Shahidah Simmons. The making of the film was a 12-year grassroots, Black feminist, lesbian, survivor-led international process and journey. Its 2006-world premiere at the Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles took place one-year before Title IX was applied to college campus sexual assault cases and eleven years before the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements. Focusing on a historically marginalized population, NO! serves as a catalyst to create the space where coalitions and partnerships are formed with Black women and men and other people of color, who are working within their own racial/cultural community?s margins of the larger mainstream gender-based violence movements.
This Movie is Free and open to the public. 7-9:30 pm in Nichols Theater
