Queen Nanny: Legendary Maroon Chieftainess screening + Q&A

October 13 @ 6:30 pm 8:30 pm

We’re partnering with The New Black Film Collective for a screening at the Museum of London Docklands that unearths the story of Jamaica’s only female National Hero. The documentary Queen Nanny: Legendary Maroon Chieftainess – by award-winning Jamaican-born American filmmaker Roy T. Anderson and Dr Harecourt Fuller – explores one of the most revered heroines in the history of the ‘New World’: Nanny of the Maroons. Her victory is celebrated in the present with her image appearing on the Jamaican $500 note and a posthumous award of Order of National Hero. Her resistance is an inspirational example of the many ways in which women have undermined slavery throughout history. Join us and learn more about this African warrior queen whose military prowess led her people to victory over the British army. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A with special guest speakers. Advertised end times may be subject to change. Black History Month 2023 #SalutingOurSisters
