The New Jersey Center for the Performing Arts (NJPAC) will present a free virtual screening and panel discussion for the next series of PSEG True Diversity Film films “Not Done: Women Remaking America”.

The panel will be moderated by Dr. Melissa Cooper, an associate professor of history at Rutgers University in Newark and author of The Creation of Gula: A History of the Sapel Islands, Race, and the American Imagination.

# Me too. Time is up. Women’s March. Black Lives Matter. Everywhere you look today, the tide of protectionist sentiment is flowing. The Emmy-nominated documentary PBS Not Done reflects the last five years of the women’s movement and its intensified cross-sectional struggle for equality.

It features new interviews from the first line of the feminist tidal wave with Taran Burke, Shonda Rhymes, Gloria Steinem, Kimberle Crenshaw, Patrice Callors, Alicia Garza, Joey Nightingale and Tina Thean.

The NJPAC PSEG True Diversity Film series focuses on films that address various aspects of the current movement for social justice. The series sticks to the book club model: watch selected movies at home and then get together with others online to discuss them with discussion participants who can offer context.
