About this event

In honor of LGBTQ history month and Barnard's Queer Awareness month, this October join Barnard's Artemis Rising Foundation Filmmaker Fellow, Sekiya Dorsett, for a screening of her documentary, Stonewall 50: The Revolution, followed by a panel discussion on the connections/divergences between LGBTQ activism and the Civil Rights Movement.

Panelists will include Brooke Sopelsa, Editorial Director of NBC Out, and Jah Elyse Sayers, queer researcher and organizer, as well as other guests.

This SPARK event is being held in partnership with Barnard's Film Program. The theme of SPARK in 2022-23 is protest.

This event is free and open to the public.

You must RSVP to attend.

This event will be followed by a field trip to Stonewall on Friday, October 7th with Barnard’s LGBTQ+ Outreach Coordinator Dylan Kapit (they/them, ’16). For more information and to register for the field trip, click here. The field trip is only open to currently enrolled BC/CU students.

SPARK is a series of provocations and conversations designed to ignite your thinking about change and how it happens. Through interviews, book talks, field trips, film screenings, and more, you'll get to know the women and nonbinary people leading change in a wide range of areas, and learn more about the hard, but important, work of building a better future. SPARK is open to all members of the Barnard community, including faculty, staff, alumnae, and friends of the college.

Funding for SPARK is provided by The Harnisch Foundation.
