Reel Sisters Film Festival in association with Kumble Theater present Black Women’s Joy: How Do You Play?
Reel Sisters in association with Kumble Theater will kick off the festival’s 20th Anniversary season with “Black Women's Joy: How Do You Play?” Join us for a preview of Marta Effinger-Crichlow’s “Little Sallie Walker,” a documentary that tells the story of Black women who hold on to childhood play to cope in America.

Enjoy an evening of fun and sharing stories as we journey into childhood to reclaim our freedom to experience joy.
The event will be held on Wed., Sept. 27, 6:30 pm at Kumble Theater. For information call: 212-865-2982 or 718-488-1624 Free! Donations Welcomed!

Little Sallie Walker
Producer/Director: Marta Effinger-Crichlow
In Little Sallie Walker, Black women across the United States reflect upon their relationships with childhood play revealing how this ignored legacy helps them survive life in America. The title of the film is inspired by the classic follow-the-leader game "Little Sally Walker.” From big cities to rural hamlets, play like patty-cake, double-dutch, dress-up, hop-scotch, doll-making, and hide-and-go-seek help to paint an alternative picture of black women’s lives. Little Sallie Walker is a work-in-progress, please support the film at
Marta Effinger-Crichlow (Producer/Director/Writer) is an interdisciplinary artist who uses film, theatre and literature as she focuses upon black women and girls and freedom and place. She is the author of Staging Migrations toward an American West: From Ida B. Wells to Rhodessa Jones (University Press of Colorado).
