My friend the awesome Bianca Laureano wrote to tell me about an upcoming screening of an important new documentary Black Girl Project this Friday August 27. She writes,
"My homegirl, activist, filmmaker, mami, radical teacher, and media maker Aiesha Turman will have her premiere screening of one of her first films through her production company SUPER HUSSY MEDIA for her organization called THE BLACK GIRL PROJECT.
The Black Girl Project (BGP) is now a non-profit organization of which I sit on the board. We have amazing events and activities planned to create our communities (world and universe) into engaging, supportive, and loving spaces for young black girls (and yes that includes Latinas as well as other/all ethnicities!). There will be a cocktail reception, film screening, and panel discussion with Aiesha and 4 participants in her film.
The film screening on Friday is at the Spike Lee Screening Room located at Long Island University 1 University Place Brooklyn, NY btw Flatbush and DeKalb (yes that is in Brooklyn). Tickets are on sale and are $20 (these are donations to the BGP) and will be on sale until Friday at NOON online http://bgpbk.eventbrite.com/ and are $25 at the door. You will get a dope film to see, drinks, dessert, and to see your girl in some 3 inch heels (honestly that alone is worth the $20, those of you who have seen me in my 3 inch heels know this is the TRUTH).
If you cannot attend but would like to support please consider making a donation. http://blackgirlproject.org/get-involved/
