Cinema in Africana

In our unit on Cinema in Africa, we’ve watched several movies centering on the narratives of Black young women. These films raise questions surrounding Blackness, gender, and identity, as well as silence, shame, guilt, escape, self-expression, self-love, and┬ácommunity. Browse around on this page for reviews, reactions, and responses to the movies.
