Brown Girls NYC Screening

Cosponsored by the NYU Center for Multicultural Education and Programs and the Asian/Pacific/American Institute at NYU. Hosted by Black Nerd Problems.

7:30PM Doors
8PM Performances
9PM Screening

In conjunction with other cities around the world, we are hosting a free screening of Brown Girls, a new webseries exploring the lives of two young women of color. Leila is a South Asian American writer just now owning her queerness. Patricia is a sex-positive Black American musician who is struggling to commit to anything: job, art, or relationships. While the two women come from  different backgrounds, their friendship is ultimately what they lean on to get through the messiness of their mid-twenties. Written by Fatimah Asghar, directed and produced by Sam Bailey, this series is presented by OpenTV.

Nicole Homer and Brittany Williams (Black Nerd Problems) will host and the program will feature performances by Jenn Mundia, Ashni, and more.
