“I’m truly honored to once again sponsor and serve as honorary host for the Reel Sisters of the Diaspora Film Festival and Lecture Series with Council Member Laurie Cumbo,” said Council Member Jumaane D. Williams (D-Brooklyn), Deputy Leader and Chair of the Council’s Housing and Buildings Committee. “My first love and aspiration was acting and I still maintain a strong passion for film and the arts. This multifaceted series not only highlights the artistic, social, and political ideas of a diverse group of women from a variety of different ethnic backgrounds, but represents the cultural diversity that defines Brooklyn.”
