Black Girl In Suburbia (documentary trailer)
Black Girl In Suburbia is a feature documentary that looks into the experiences of Black girls growing up in predominately white communities. This is a different look into suburbia from the perspective of women of color. This film explores through professional and personal interviews the conflict and issues Black girls have relating to both white and Black communities.
Black Girl In Suburbia intends to spark an open dialogue about race, identity, and perspective among all people, in hopes that these discussions will allow us to reconsider perceptions of ourselves, others and the communities in which we live and share.
Release date 2014

Oh hey my life. I wonder how much I’ll see myself in there! Though I have immigrant parents from two different countries, so that adds a whole ‘nother layer of complexity.
This is, hands down, my favorite TED Talk of all time. That isn’t hyperbole. I spent three days trying to pull out some highlights to share and ended up with a second-by-second recap of the whole dang thing.
Just hit play, and let the awesomeness wash over you (but especially pay attention around the 10-minute mark because that’s when things get really good).
