Kindred Spirits
Presented by: Cintia Cabib 

In celebration of Women’s History Month, filmmaker Cintia Cabib will screen and discuss her new documentary, Kindred Spirits: Artists Hilda Wilkinson Brown and Lilian Thomas Burwell. The film explores the lives and work of two accomplished but unsung African-American artists and educators – both native Washingtonians – and their special bond as aunt and niece. Throughout this exploration of their art and careers, a third portrait emerges: that of a segregated Washington, D.C. where, denied the same access and opportunities as their white colleagues, black artists seized educational opportunities, became prominent faculty members of African-American schools, and established their own venues to exhibit and publish their work.
