Feministing Reads: Kathleen Collins’s Whatever Happened to Interracial Love?

When Kathleen Collins’s 1982 film Losing Ground was screened at New York’s Film Society of Lincoln Center in 2015, it immediately became inconceivable to me that film history might have been written without it.

Feministing Reads: Toni Morrison’s God Help the Child

Toni Morrison is a national treasure, and a new Morrison novel is a national event.
