Julie DashPioneering filmmaker Julie Dash, M.F.A., has joined Spelman College as the Distinguished Professor in the Arts. As Distinguished Professor, she is helping to develop the new documentary filmmaking major in the Department of Art & Visual Culture.

Dash broke through racial and gender boundaries and made history as the first African-American woman to have a wide theatrical release of a feature film when her Sundance award-winning movie, “Daughters of the Dust,” was released in 1991. In 2012, the film was inducted into the National Film Registry, making her the only African-American woman with a feature film in the Registry. She recently directed multiple episodes of the television drama “Queen Sugar” for OWN, which returns to the air Oct. 3-4.
