Screening of Zeinabu Davis's Compensation with Q&A

Thursday, March 31, 2022
5:30 pm
Williams Hall, 107

Inspired by a 1906 poem by Paul Laurence Dunbar, Compensation explores aspects of

Black culture in early 1900s and mid-1990s Chicago through two parallel love stories,

both about the relationship between a deaf woman and a hearing man.

A veteran of independent film and video, Davis has produced numerous award winning

works. Her vision is passionately focused on the depiction of African American women

- their hopes, dreams, past and future. Her interests include altering and diversifying the

terrain of mass media, film history, world cinema and folklore. She frequently writes and

lectures on African and African American cinema.
