Big Read Film Screening: Daughters of the Dust
To cap off our celebration of Tayari Jones' novel Silver Sparrow, as part of the NEA's Big Read, we will be screening Julie Dash's groundbreaking film Daughters of the Dust. Set in the legendary Sea Islands off the South Carolina/Georgia coast in 1902, the film follows a Gullah family on the eve of their migration to the North. Led by a group of women, the extended family readies itself to leave behind friends, loved ones and their insulated way of life. These vital images were introduced to a new generation on a massive scale earlier when the film was heavily referenced in Beyoncés visual album, Lemonade.

USA  1991  112 MINS  COHEN MEDIA GROUP

Throughout May and June, BPL will celebrate the novel Silver Sparrow with book discussions, films and music as part of the NEA's Big Read.

NEA Big Read is a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
