WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE AN AFRICAN-AMERICAN WOMAN WHO LOVES HIP-HOP?
Director: Briana Noble & Free Spirit Media
Winner of the PERSPECTIVES AWARD
ABOUT THE FILM
African-American women are affected by the way that they are portrayed in the hip-hop culture. Music videos denigrate and make them seem like solemn sexual objects, but there is hope, as the young women in this eye-opening video suggest that the way they act and the values that they practice everyday will reflect whom they really are.
