Raven Ancar, a School of Liberal Arts student majoring in sociology and digital media practices, has filmed and directed a feature-length documentary, The Veil, about the experience of Black students on Tulane’s campus. In January 2019, during her first year at Tulane, Ancar filmed several sit-down interviews with fellow students to explore W. E. B. Du Bois’ notions of “the veil” and “double-consciousness,” as presented in his 1903 book The Souls of Black Folks. Ancar’s film probes topics of diversity, inclusion, racism and white supremacy culture. It has been screened by the Newcomb Art Museum and through other venues on campus.
