The Women’s Law Project is a proud co-sponsor of the Just Films festival, a new festival that screens one new social justice film per month from September through next June, in Pittsburgh.
On October 27, we will screen Yemanjá: Wisdom from the African Heart of Brazil.
This new award-winning documentary film by Donna C. Roberts (a Pittsburgh filmmaker) and Donna Read explores the fascinating Candomblé spiritual culture in Bahia, Brazil, a vibrant African-derived tradition which evolved from the ways of enslaved Africans in the New World’s largest slave port.
The film is narrated by Alice Walker, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Color Purple, who will be our special guest panelist at this Pittsburgh premiere.
Register for your free ticket here, and we hope to see you on October 27!
The Women’s Law Project is the only public interest law center in Pennsylvania devoted to advancing the rights of women and girls.
