Event Details

Started by Speller Street Films and The Luminal Theater, BLK Docs is an initiative to help build an authentic documentary film culture within the African-American community through film screenings, online classes, webinars, and more.

Our 3rd virtual screening is the documentary BACK TO NATURAL, August 27 – September 3. Tickets are $5. 66 min.

We will have a free virtual Q&A on August 27 at 8 PM EST with director Dr. Gillian Scott-Ward and documentary interviewee Okema T. Moore. The Q&A will be moderated by Charlon Turner, the Festival Director of the North Carolina Black Film Festival.

BACK TO NATURAL reveals the shocking truth about the intersection of hair, politics, and racial identity in Black communities and beyond. Directed by New York City-based clinical psychologist Dr. Gillian Scott-Ward, and inspired both by her clinical practice work and her drive to go natural, this call for healing, and exploration of the globalized policing of natural Black hair equally celebrates our history and natural styles that are taking the world by storm.
