Watch this. Don’t scroll anywhere else until you chill for about 8 minutes and watch.
I first posted the original draft of this over a year ago and, at the time, had plans to submit it to film festivals. That never happened for a variety of reasons.
I finally (FINALLY!!) have a thesis director and will be starting the actual research (the methodology is still being worked out, but the primary focus is White men’s thoughts on Black women and the significance of that. Fun, right?) soon and thought of this this morning as I inched my way back into the cocoon of sullen, angry, the world is awful to Black women mode.
I’m still proud of this. It’s still relevant. You should watch it.
Or don’t. This is America!
