By Lesli D. Harris on Wed, 01/30/2019 - 09:55

In an effort to keep everyone up-to-date on what our university experts are saying and doing, we’ll be send out the “The Friday Five,” an email complete with five items (and maybe a couple lagniappe) meant to keep you informed of the stories we’ve placed or written, the videos we’ve produced, and the projects we’ve had a hand in creating.

Here's a roundup of all the exciting things that happened in January!

Please feel free to share these news items to keep the good news of Loyola going!

  1. Loyola film instructor and winner of the 2017 Sundance Garrett Bradley premieres “America” on tomorrow, January 26, at the Sundance Film Festival. Her motion picture, a compilation of 12 silent films depicting everyday black life in the early 20th century, sheds light on a lost era in film and explores issues of race, history, justice, and media. The film will be the subject of a sculptural installation that kicks off this summer at the New Orleans Museum of Art.
