In Mariannes Noires, seven different French-born women of African descent confront their own unique identities and challenge the expectations of French society. While some came from great privilege, and others came from nothing at all, they each have attained a high level of success and influence, which they use to increase visibility for Black women in France.

Screening as part of Before the Night, followed by a Q&A with Mame-Fatou Niang, co-director and Olivette Otele, professor of Colonial History at Bath Spa University.
