The Souls of Black Girls Film Screening
Time: 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Description: The Souls of Black Girls is a provocative news documentary that raises the question of whether or not women of color may be suffering from a self-image disorder as a result of trying to attain the standards of beauty celebrated in images of the mass media.

The documentary features candid interviews with young women discussing their self-image and social commentary from Rapper Chuck D, Actresses Regina King and Jada Pinkett Smith, Washington Week Moderator (PBS) Gwen Ifill and Cultural Critic Michaela angela Davis, among others.

The Souls of Black Girls is a piece that attempts to provoke honest dialogue and critical thinking among women of color about media images and our present condition—internally and externally.
