Sisters Doing It For Themselves

The Bernie Grant Arts Centre in Tottenham continues its adventurous film programming with a short season dedicated to female freedom fighters who took the fight to a sexist, racist, capitalist establishment. Women In Activism is curated by Charmaine Simpson, and kicks off tonight with The Supreme Price, a documentary on the struggle for women’s rights in Nigeria before presenting three profiles of iconic African and African-American artists – [Miriam Makeba] Mama Africa [May 12], Baddddd Sonia Sanchez [May 26], and The Amazing Nina Simone [June 8]. All screenings are at 7.30 pm and tickets are £8.
