Newcomb Art Museum is excited to screen “The Veil”, a brave documentary film shot in New Orleans by Raven Ancar (’22), a current student at Tulane majoring in Sociology and Digital Media Practices. Ancar is also President of Tulane Black Student Union, a founding member of Les Griots Violets, and a College Track Scholar. In January of 2019, during her first year at Tulane, Ancar filmed several sit-down interviews with fellow Black students about their experiences on campus to interrogate W. E. B. Du Bois’ notions of “the veil” and “double-consciousness”, as presented in his 1903 book “The Souls of Black Folks.” Created from an activist point of view, this first feature-length film by Ancar candidly probes topics of diversity, inclusion, racism and white supremacy culture in our region.
Thursday, May 20st, 6pm CST screening followed by live talkback between director and audience at 7:15pm CST
