Since its formation in 2004, New Voices Pittsburgh (NVP) has worked to build a social change movement dedicated to the health and well-being of black women and girls through leadership development, human rights, and reproductive justice. On June 10th, BOOM Concepts will host the the organization’s June Membership Meeting, which will celebrate Pride with a screening of four short films by NVP members.
The evening will include works from filmmakers Turntable Ruckus, Joy KMT, Bekezela Mguni, Ginger Brooks, Takahashi, Terri Denni and Da Velle Barns. The selections include Love. Danger. Heal. and This is Our Inheritance. The films were made in 2012 with the support of the Queer Women of Color Media Arts Project (QWOCMAP), and shown at the 2013 Queer Women of Color Film Festival.
The NVP June Membership Meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. Snacks, pizza, and beverages, as well as childcare, will be provided. Admission is free.
