The staff of a Black hair salon fend off a monster: white women intent on sucking the lifeblood from Black culture.
JESSINA EMMERT (she/her)
Jessina Emmert is a Chancellor Doctoral Fellow and PhD student in the Department of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at KU. She focuses on how conceptions of race change over time, which includes the phenomenon of racial passing in the United States, as well as contemporary performances of blackface that are illustrated on social media and in film.
CIERRA ROBERSON (she/her & they/them)
Cierra Roberson is the Program Coordinator for Identity and Social Justice Programs with the Office of Multicultural Affairs at KU. She holds a Bachelor's in African American Studies and Master’s in Women Studies from The University of Alabama. A lover of practically all horror films, Cierra loves to use a Black Feminist perspective to explore the genre. This perspective allows for an investigation of how Black women are portrayed within cinematic horror, serving as a method to further articulate the particularities of race and gender within cinema.
