Black Ballerina: Documentary Screening and Q&A


In celebration of Women's History Month, join us for a screening of an engaging documentary film, followed by a question and answer session with Producer and Director Frances McElroy. Door prizes, too!

Black Ballerina tells the story of black women from different generations who fell in love with ballet, and stimulates a fresh discussion about race, inclusion and opportunity across all sectors of American society.

Producer/Director Frances McElroy is a 2009 Pew Fellow in the Arts and 2010 Leeway Foundation Transformation Awardee. Project supporters include the National Endowment for the Arts, Women In Film and the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. BLACK BALLERINA is produced by Shirley Road Productions and distributed by American Public Television.
