19th Women of African Descent Film Festival
The media constantly bombards us with negative images of people of African descent. Our positive accomplishments, uplifting experiences, and gifts to humanity get little attention. The Brooklyn Chapter believes it is vitally important that our legacy be maintained, nurtured and preserved and it is our responsibility to shape the publics perception of who we are as a people. Through the medium of film, filmmakers of African descent document and relay the stories of our past, present, and future. They have become the new historians preservers of our legacy. The Brooklyn Chapter realizes that many societal misconceptions start with how we are portrayed in the media. To counteract the adverse portrayal of African Americans in the movies and media, the Brooklyn Chapter in 2002 initiated Linkages: Women of African Descent Film Festival. By choosing and screening films that depict the positive linkages women of African descent have to their families, neighborhoods and communities, the film festival is able to effectively influence peoples perceptions through the medium of film.

Register here to attend the exclusive screening of the film Brick by Brick written and directed by Tina Chapman DaCosta.
