The Arts & Sciences Inclusive Inquiry Speaker Series brings transformational organizations and speakers to our community to explore shared values around DEI, engage with diverse perspectives, and enhance our inclusive teaching and research practices through community dialogue and collaboration. In alignment with William & Mary's celebration of 2023-24 as the Year of the Arts, the 2024 series will host a two-day film festival on Feb. 22 and 23 featuring Cadence Theatre Company's Sitelines BLM ACTION short films. The festival's keynote speaker is director, writer, producer and William & Mary alumnus, Omar Kamara (Economics, '15). Omar's Mass Ave was selected in 2021 as a finalist at the HBO Short Film Competition at the American Black Film Festival (ABFF). His debut feature African Giants will premiere in 2024 at the Slamdance Film Festival. This event is free and open to the public. Please see our website for event details, trailers, and more!
