"Curated by Melissa Lyde, Protect Black Women is framed as a call to action which centers the lives and interiority of those who have “historically been the most vulnerable,” on the eve of Kamala Harris’s inauguration as vice president." 
— Dessane Lopez Cassell of Hyperallergic

" The talk will feature Melissa Lyde, whose film programs have emphasized the voices of artists of color, and Ed Halter, who helped rediscover [Ed] Owens’s movies."
