Julie Dash

Dash’s 1992 film Daughters of the Dust was the first full-length film created by a black woman that had general theatrical release in the United States. In 2004, the Library of Congress placed Daughters of the Dust in the National Film Registry alongside 400 other American films that are preserved as National Treasures.

In addition to the success of her critically aclaimed 1992 film, Dash is also responsible for directing the 2002 The Rosa Parks Story.
