Blacks in Experimental Film (Part 2)
(Lost & Forgotten Images of Blacks on Film)
Curated by 8mm Anonymous

An evening of short films featuring Reg. 8mm & Super8 (Sound) only. Will feature Lois Towles, acclaimed concert pianist and sister of pioneering model Dorothea Towles. A graduate of Wiley College (of "The Great Debaters” fame), Towles sang with Fisk University’s choir and later became a member of the school’s music faculty. The evening will also be dedicated to the memory of Richard Caesar, Tuskeegee Airman/dentist & husband of Lois Towles, who died over 2 years ago. Will also include an art show ("Centennial of Lois Towles”) commemorating what would have been her 100th birthday.
