Ouvrir La Voix (Speak Up) is Gay’s feature-length directorial debut. A celebration of the diversity of womanhood within the global African diaspora, Speak Up features women of African descent conversing about their experiences in the African diaspora and reveals the complexity and diversity of black women’s lives and identities. The film is Gay’s response to the need for black francophone women to reclaim their narrative and challenge the suppression of their voices. Speak Up exalts the history of black women’s resistance—and those who have fought to be heard—while offering a testimony to those who continue to fight into the future.
This screening is in conjunction with the exhibition Question Bridge: Black Males at the Mary Porter Sesnon Art Gallery (February 6- April 6).
