ST. LOUIS (February 23, 2018) – The School of Communications at Webster University will present "Black History and Culture Short Video Showcase."

Black History Month - clock, tin cottonPlease join us on Tuesday, February 27, at noon in the Emerson Library Conference Room. We will feature five short student videos that pay tribute to black history and culture.

Work created by senior Film, Video and Television Production major Kat Bush premiered at a film festival in Canada earlier this year, while graduate New Media Production major Demetria Smith-Bryant's inspired work features family connections.

The video subject matter and presentation styles are as diverse as the filmmakers who created them. Contributors include undergraduate and graduate students; current students and alumni; individuals and entire classes. 

This is a unique experience you'll want to see. Chris Aaron, assistant professor of Film, Television and Video Production will moderate the event. Available filmmakers will answer questions after screenings.

We’ll be serving light refreshments. All members of the Webster community are welcome to attend.
