November 2, 2019 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Join the Bullock Museum for a screening and conversation about the documentary film We Are the Radical Monarchs.

We Are the Radical Monarchs documents an Oakland-based alternative to the Girl Scouts - specificlaly for girls of color, ages 8-13. The girls earn badges for units on social justice. Filmed over three years, the filmmakers follow the dynamic co-founders as they face challenges in growing the organization.

Event Details

Director Linda Goldstein Knowlton and her team follow the unexpected rise of the Radical Monarchs. Co-founders Anayvette Martinez and Marilyn Hollinquest created a safe, inclusive, empowering space for young women of color.

This screening is part of Reel Women in Film, a film series that highlights the filmic works of women in front of or behind the camera. In its second season, focus will be on ideas of empowerment seen through the lens of fashion and activism. Additionally, we will look at those within the field of filmmaking that are in the periphery, the costume designers. This evening's program is shown in conjunction with our Sister Suffragists exhibition, celebrating the suffrage centennial. The evening's program includes a film screening and Q&A. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Please note: Entrance for this screening will be at the IMAX Lobby doors.
