Black Women Speak
Samford journalism and mass communication major Camille Womack screened her documentary film Black Women Speak at Birmingham-Southern College’s Hilltop Film Festival of Diversity and Inclusion in April. The film features unfiltered conversations with four young black women about their experiences with racism in education, the workplace, society and media.
Womack, a junior concentrating in print/digital journalism and minoring in film production, adapted the film from a class project she produced this semester in professor John Marc Green’s Documentary Film Production course.
