Released 20 years ago, Julie Dash’s Daughters of the Dust is a film about a Gullah-Geechee family at the turn of the 20th century. It’s also a story about women, and a story about American and human history. Dash is in town this week to celebrate the anniversary of the film, and the Avery Research Center at the College of Charleston is hosting a two-day symposium with panels, lectures, and a screening of Daughters at Hampton Park.
