Leo Douglas, a professor at New York University (NYU), will present the March 23 screening and panel debate for his documentary Reimagining Queen Nanny of the Maroons in honor of Women’s History Month and its subject Honoring Women Who Share Our Stories.
The free session will start at 12:30 pm via Zoom and is co-sponsored by the Institute of Jamaica.
The accompanying film honors the self-determination, eco-spirituality, and Afro-indigenous retentions of the previously enslaved people of Jamaica and the Diaspora, which premiered in December.
Panelists and educators from the fields of liberal studies, cultural history, and biodiversity, including Professor Jacqueline Bishop, Dr. Marcia Douglas, Dr. Tao Leigh Goffe, and Dr. Thera Edwards, will provide additional context to the production’s topics.
The Jamaica Conservation and Development Trust, Picture by Ultra, the Centre for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at NYU, the Liberal Studies’ CSI (Cultural and Social Identities), SHE (Sustainability, Health, and the Environment), and scientific specializations are all co-sponsors of the event.
