SHERO Film Series – A Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Celebration Event

Inspired by Frederick Doulgass’ support in the Women’s Suffrage Movement, the Banneker-Douglass Museum and Filmsters presents two series of films and a panel discussion that explores women’s empowerment, intersectionality, and feminism through a series of films.

12:00 n -2:30 pm: A Family/Kids Film that highlights women's empowerment.
5:00 pm-7:30 pm: A feature length screening.  Correlating with Douglass' support in the women suffrage movement, the event will explore topics in present day women empowerment movements.  Following the movie, is a panel (20 minutes) that engages audiences with discussion topics such as male ally- ship and intersectional feminism and its portrayal in mass media. 

(Definition of SHERO (plural sheroes): a woman regarded as a hero)

As the State of Maryland’s official museum of African American heritage, the Banneker-Douglass Museum serves to document, to interpret, and to promote African American history and culture (particularly in Maryland) through exhibitions, programs, and projects in order to improve the understanding and appreciating of America’s rich cultural diversity for all. The Banneker-Douglass Museum is a component of the Maryland Commission on African American History and Culture, which is a unit of the Governor’s Office of Community Initiatives — an executive-department agency, whose mandate to coordinate outreach efforts to communities, organizations, and local governments across Maryland serves as a unifying principle for all its departments.
