Nehad-webready Nehad2-webready

Nehad Khader considers herself to be a cultural historian. She is a filmmaker/curator, an editor, and a writer whose work in film informs her work as a historian and vice versa. Trained in media and literature by Black and Palestinian creators, Nehad believes in art that carries aesthetic excellence as well as socio-political significance. She is the senior program manager at Philly’s BlackStar Film Festival and was lead curator of the DC Palestinian Film & Arts Festival for six years, currently working in an advisory position. She also serves as the managing editor of the Journal of Palestine Studies. She is directing her first feature-length documentary about the life of Palestinian-American organizer Rasmea Odeh and working as a producer on a musical documentary about Islamophobia with director David Felix Sutcliffe ((T)Error, Adama). Nehad is deeply committed to justice in the city of Philadelphia, Palestinian liberation, and stories by creators of color. In her free time she is reading fiction by Black women authors.
