Opening Night Film: "The Sleeping Negro"
The young black man, simply identified as “Man,” must resolve the personal meaning of his blackness when his white boss orders him to commit fraud to benefit the corporation. Struggling with an overwhelming sense of shame for going through with the illegal demand, Man seeks consolation by discussing his unease with a black former friend and his white fiancé.

Closing Night Film: "Josephine Baker"
The African Diaspora International Film Festival invites you to celebrate the work and life of Josephine Baker, first black woman to enter France's Panthéon. French President Emmanuel Macron will host the ceremony on Nov. 30, 2021. Josephine Baker will be the fifth woman to be honored with a Pantheon burial and will also be the first entertainer honored.
The virtual screening will be followed by a Zoom conversation about this trailblazer between Julia Brown, founder of Walk the Spirit Tours of Black Paris and Susan Smith Richardson, The Guardian US deputy editor.
