Kathleen Collins (1942-1988) was a civil-rights organizer, playwright, filmmaker, and professor at New York’s City College. Her second film, Losing Ground (1982), one of the very first features by an African-American woman, was not released theatrically. Last year, it was featured in Tell it like it is: Black Independents in New York, 1968-1986 (Film Society of Lincoln Center), and Milestone Films will release a DVD of the film later this year.
