Jennifer Holness “Subjects of Desire” (PETL Equity Speakers Series)

Thursday May 9 @ 4:30 pm 6:00 pm

Conversation with award-winning film director, Jennifer Holness. Subjects of Desire explores the cultural shift in North American beauty standards towards embracing Black female aesthetics and features while exposing the deliberate and often dangerous portrayals of Black women in the media. Told from the point of view of women who aren’t afraid to challenge conventional beauty standards, Subjects of Desire is a culturally significant, provocative film that deconstructs what we understand about race and the power behind beauty.
