Film Director Olayinka Hassan to show The Antidote of Life


Already established in her career as a chemist, Olayinka Hassan wanted to express herself in the arts as well as in the sciences. To combine both passions, Hassan went back to graduate school to earn an MFA in film directing. Her premiere film, The Antidote of Life, will be shown by the Ethnic Studies Program to the CWRU community on Friday, November 21st, at 12:30 p.m. in Clark 309. The film challenges stereotypes Hollywood has created about African American women and society. The short film (11 mins.) will be followed by a discussion led by CWRU’s African American Society (AfroAm). Co-sponsored by the Women’s and Gender Studies Program and the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women.
