Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Julie Dash (born October 22, 1952 in Long Island City, Queens, New York) is a United States filmmaker. Her Daughters of the Dust in 1991 was the first full-length film with general theatrical release in the United States by an African American woman. Daughters of the Dust was included in the National Film Registry in 2004. She is an honorary member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. Julie Dash was named a 2007 USA Rockefeller Foundation Fellow and awarded a $50,000 grant by United States Artists, a public charity that supports and promotes the work of American artists. Julie Dash initially was rejected by Hollywood executives when she pitched her first full-length film, Daughters of the Dust. Dash stated in an interview with the Boston Globe that she was turned down in a very similar systematic fashion of excluding black women from Hollywood. She was told that her film was "too different."
