Women in Blue: Race and Gender in the Minneapolis Police Dept.

This program was recorded on June 22, 2021.

One year ago, the tragic death of George Floyd put the Minneapolis Police Department in the spotlight, but even prior to that terrible event, filmmaker Deirdre Fishel was exploring the historical intersection of race, gender, and Minneapolis police reform in her acclaimed documentary Women in Blue. Join Fishel as she discusses the making of her film and the lessons it holds for our times.

Deirdre Fishel is an associate professor at the City University of New York. Her film Women in Blue may be seen on the PBS Independent Lens series.

This free webinar is offered by OLLI at the University of Minnesota in partnership with the Ramsey County Library with support from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
