The Office of Inclusive Excellence

The Multicultural Center, Office of Inclusive Excellence, Ball State University Libraries, Friends of Bracken Library, and the Office of the Provost are excited to present a screening of the 2013 film Living Thinkers: An Autobiography of Black Women in the Ivory Tower as part of Unity Week 2021 and Reel Inclusion: A Film Series.  This synchronous online film screening takes place at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 3 via Zoom.  Produced and directed by Roxana Walker-Canton, this documentary examines the intersection of race, class, and gender through examining the lives and careers of Black women professors and administrators at U.S. colleges and universities.  The film presents compelling narratives and interviews that explore the overt and covert discrimination that Black women in higher education have faced and continue to face while also celebrating these educators’ talents and triumphs.


Following the film will be a discussion at 6:45 p.m. facilitated by Dr. Kendra Lowery, Assistant Professor of Educational Leadership and Assistant Dean for School Engagement in the Teachers College.


Those who wish to participate in the film screening and discussion should register for the Zoom event.


If you need any accommodations to fully participate in this event, please contact Disability Services at or 765-285-5293.
