@ Whitelock Community Farm
Celebrate the opening of the 4th annual Black Femme Supremacy Film Fest the safe and socially distant way! There will be an emergency preparedness workshop as well as a panel on climate change featuring prominent black femme leaders in the green space and a double feature film screening.
PANEL: How We Advance Climate Justice and Environmental Liberation
Moderated by Naadiya Hutchinson this panel features; Destiny Hodges, Founder and Co-Executive Director of Generation Green; Nneka Nnamdi, Founder of Fight Blight Baltimore; Kristal Hansley founder of We Solar and Shashawnda Campbell the Enviromental Justice Coordinator of South Baltimore Comunity Land Trust.
This panel will interrogate how we can act and reflect upon the world in a manner that centers Black Femme liberation. Through conversations about environmental liberation, community development without displacement, a just economic transition, and a toxic-free, zero-waste, circular economy – panelists will reveal what a world that centers climate justice and environmental liberation looks like.
Dis-placia: Vacants in the Village – Directed & Written by Jewel Guy & Nneka Namdi, is the third part of Fight Blight Bmore’s series to increase awareness about blight in Baltimore. It builds on part I, a transmedia exhibition, and part II a community-based hack-a-thon to create a feature-length documentary film that exposes what blight is, how it came into being, what must be done to address it and how the community is doing its part to solve the problem.
