Department of French and Italian (EVENTS)

Rokhaya Diallo, Afro-Parisienne journalist, antiracism activist, and award-winning filmmaker, turned her camera on an emerging generation of black activists who, in the wake of the deaths of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown, were able to mobilize international opinion in favor of the protests in America. Although France is confronted with similar problems, the victims of French police brutality have not benefited from the same media attention.  Not Yo Mama’s Movement explores the similarities and differences between the racial situations in the U.S. and France and how today’s activists navigate building movements for change. A Q+A with the filmmaker Rokhaya Diallo will follow the screening.
