Rated B for Black

This experimental film embodies some of the representations of black people that the media and film industry lack. This film is an establishment of Samantha's goal of properly representing different types of black people instead of generalizing them into one negatively viewed category. While doing so, she also wanted to be able to show the unity between black folks and the power that unity has. Enjoy this film:)
