Silver at the Pen America World Voices Festival.They spoke about revolution across generational lines and how the concept of family—in all its different forms—inspires and empowers their published writings, their use of art, and their pursuit of justice. Blint also participated in a three-day film festival and conference on The Black Experience in Black French Cinema staged by the Institute for French Studies at New York University. The event explored the changing representations of blackness in French cinema through the themes of cross-racial desire, housing segregation and political unrest, as well as the role of African Americans in France.
