Kasi Lemmons’ Black Histories and Dreamworlds (feat. Christina Baker)
Former actor Kasi Lemmons has charted her own cinematic path since tiring of “best friend” roles in mid-90s. The versatile director of “Eve’s Bayou” (1997), “Talk To Me” (2007), and “Harriet” (2019) has gradually cultivated a fascinating directorial career. To discuss this pioneering Black female filmmaker and genre-agnostic dramatist, we’re thrilled to be joined by Professor Christina N. Baker, editor of “Kasi Lemmons: Interviews.”
