Black Americans migrating again: filmmaker Naimah Fuller at RFC in Shreveport, Wed, 10-5-11, 7:30 pm

Naimah Fuller, an award-winning media artist and independent filmmaker, will be visiting the Centenary campus as an Attaway Scholar from Oct. 5 through Oct. 7, says Annie Blazer.

Fuller will host a showing of her documentary at Robinson Film Center.

Born in rural Georgia, Fuller’s love of cinema began at an early age, as her father, grandfather and great-grandfather were all photographers. Pursuing this passion, she majored in commercial photography at the Arts & Crafts Institute in Detroit, Mi.

After studying filmmaking at the Studio Museum in Harlem and working on movie sets, she embarked on a seven-year stint as a producer-writer at WABC-TV. These experiences led her to become the producer, director, writer and cinematographer of her current documentary project: Home: The Great Migration of the 21st Century.
