Though more than a century has passed since higher education was opened for black women, they represent an alarmingly low percentage of faculty members in US colleges and universities. Baobab Cultural Center this week will host a screening of Roxana Walker-Canton's 2013 film "Living Thinkers: An Autobiography of Black Women in the Ivory Tower." Through frank conversations about personal experiences, the documentary examines the intersection of race, class, and gender for black women professors and administrators working in US colleges and universities.

"Living Thinkers" will be screened at Baobab Community Center (728 University Avenue), on Friday, March 30. 7 p.m. Free, RSVP: baobab.center@yahoo.com. 563-2145; baobabcultural.org.
