Black Girl Church:
Film Screening and Panel Discussion


On Feb. 21, 2020 Rice University hosted the first screening of "Black Girl Church” in this region. The screening was brought to campus through the work of Lovett College junior Taylor Crain and was co--sponsored by the Rice Creative Society, ACE@Rice and CERCL. Over 200 guests joined us at the Moody center for the Arts to view this short film about black beauty, which started off as a love letter to black girls and turned into an intimate portrayal of black beauty, the dynamics of the black beauty industry, and some of the realities of black women.


The event included a discussion panel with the creators: Audrey Williams, Marissa Pina, Joe Schaefer, and cast member and former editor of Nylon Mag and Refinery29, Sesali Bowen.
