“Black Mirror and Black Feminist Futures or Leticia Wright’s Wrongs?” by Moya Bailey

Moya Bailey, associate professor, Northwestern University and founder of the Digital Apothecary and co-founder of the Black Feminist Health Science Studies Collective takes a look back at the “Black Museum” episode of theSciFi series Black Mirror, to ask: is this a Black feminist text and does it matter if the actor is not a feminist? Examining the filmography of Leticia Wright in contrast with her conservative Christian views, this talk endeavors to think through the messiness of the feminist potential of performance even in spite of oneself. Moderated by Apryl Williams, U-M assistant professor of communication and media.
