Mariannes Noires

Thursday, October 17, 2019 at 7:00pm to 8:17pm

Willard Straight Theatre
Central Campus

Recent violence and growing nationalism in France have brought fierce debates about the country's identity to the forefront. 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. However, despite their power, their achievements, and their leadership, and no matter their class background or ancestral heritage, they all survive systemic inequality.
