PVJFF: Bombshell: The Hedy Lamarr Story
Starlet. Screen Siren. The Most Beautiful Woman in the World. All phrases used to describe 1940s Hollywood icon Hedy Lamarr. This illuminating documentary adds Inventor to the list. Known for her physical glamour and electric on-screen persona, Lamarr’s beautiful mind was often overlooked. An Austrian Jewish émigré who acted by day and drew mechanical and electronic schematics by night, Lamarr invented a “secret communication system” the Navy used to fight the Nazis, but received no credit, and eventually went bankrupt.

UnCommon Bonds Panel

Book Release Event Join Editors, Kersha Smith, PhD and Marcella Runell Hall EdD; and contributors Keisha Green PhD, Millicent Jackson,JLove Calderon, Imani Romney-Rosa, and other special guests to celebrate this collection of essays. The panel will discuss intersectionality, gender and the complexity of intimate relationships. Reception & Book signing will follow. This is the pre-conference event for the Women of Color Leadership Conference. About UnCommon Bonds: Women Reflect on Race and Friendship UnCommon Bonds is a brave, thoughtful, complicated and honest examination of the challenges and rewards of building and sustaining authentic cross-race friendships. The book examines the issue in a range of creative and engaging ways – through autobiographical narratives, essays, dialogues, letters and critical social analysis linked to personal experience. The result is a provocative and urgent exploration of why this effort can be so hard, as well as a testament to how life affirming and essential cross-race relationships can be. Unlike other books that focus only on cross-race alliances between women of color and white women, this book also looks at the challenges and opportunities in the bonds created among women of color from diverse racial groups. Further, it attends to the intersections of class, gender, generation, transnational location and other aspects of identity that impact such relationships – all the while keeping race central to the dialogue.  The book offers breath-taking honesty and courageous truth telling from women of color about the damage white ignorance and cowardice can do to relationships – even within multiracial families. It also offers a wake up call and some excellent modeling for white women about the commitment, humility, self-reflection and vulnerability necessary for being trustworthy partners/allies to women of color. The writing is vivid, strong and deeply moving with many powerful lessons to offer readers who struggle to create meaningful relationships across race. The hard-won knowledge reflected in this book is a gift to us all.  --Lee Anne Bell, Professor Emerita, Barnard College

2018 Women of Color Trailblazers Leadership Conference

The Students of Color Committee prides itself in creating spaces where students can continue to question, challenge and cultivate their minds in order to advance personal growth, commitment, and social advocacy for historically underrepresented communities. In addition, we strive to encourage open dialogues and raise consciousness about issues and intersections prevalent in modern day society regarding race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and many more identities. This year, we would like to continue this tradition and open the Women of Color Trailblazers Leadership Conference to all self- identifying women of color across the Five­ Colleges alongside faculty, staff, and community members. The theme for the 2018 conference is “Empowerment Through Engagement,” featuring keynote speakers Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez, and Linda Sarsour. This conference will consist of workshops that focus on the topics of peer networking, professional and personal development, and leadership opportunities. Most importantly, this conference will provide a space to celebrate the lives and accomplishments of women of color.
