S1. Ep. 1: Ladies First and Last

THE CLASS OF 1989 // Episodes // S1. Ep. 1: Ladies First and Last

1989 was not the year of the Black woman in film. The Color Purple was one of the few feature films in the 80s that centered on Black women, and it wouldn’t be until 1992 that a Black woman would get theatrical distribution directing a film about Black women. Just like Anita Hill is often credited for the 1992 election being deemed ‘the year of the woman,’ what seeds were planted in ’89 that inspired or provoked Black women directors in the next decade?
