Columbia County Women’s Alliance Presents a Conversation w/ Lacey Schwartz Delgado, Feb 16

In honor of Black History Month, Columbia County Women’s Alliance (CCWA) presents, A Conversation With Lacey Schwartz Delgado, Executive Producer of American Masters: How It Feels To Be Free, on February 16th.

American Masters: How It Feels To Be Free tells the inspiring story of how six iconic African American female entertainers – Lena Horne, Abbey Lincoln, Nina Simone, Diahann Carroll, Cicely Tyson and Pam Grier – challenged an entertainment industry deeply complicit in perpetuating racist stereotypes, and transformed themselves and their audiences in the process. The film, which is slated to premiere in early 2021 on PBS and on documentaryChannel in Canada, features interviews and archival performances with all six women, as well as original conversations with contemporary artists influenced by them, including Alicia Keys, an executive producer on the project, Halle Berry, Lena Waithe, Meagan Good, LaTanya Richardson Jackson, Samuel L. Jackson and other luminaries, as well as family members, including Horne’s daughter Gail Lumet Buckley.

American Masters: How It Feels To Be Free can be viewed FREE online here until February 16.
