It’s been a long time coming (a little over a year) since I started filming my documentary, “White Girls in Hip-Hop“, but since then this little project of mine has grown and expanded in ways that I never thought possible. The reception to the idea and concept of a socially and racially conscious project that examines the various undertones of racism and race in America (particularly in Hip-Hop), has been overwhelming and I would like to personally thank everyone who has participated in it thus far.
Although we – my documentary team (which includes LLL’s Hazzle Andrada) are nowhere near finished, I am happy to announce that we have finally reached a halfway point in the filming. This little documentary that started as my Journalism senior thesis project has introduced me to all kinds of amazing new people and opportunities and I’m excited about what the latter part of our journey holds in store. Please watch our teaser with an open mind and share it with all your friends, classmates, family and co-workers. This project is only as big as we make it. I hope that you all will continue to follow our journey and keep the dialogue about race in Hip-Hop free-flowing and open.
