By Kaitlyn Fonseca-Laguna and Marisa HirschmanJanuary 21, 2019 10:03:27The Black Girl Who Can Run In The Dark is one of my favorite movies, and for a lot of us, it’s still one of the best of the last few years.
Its’ been a long time since we’ve seen a black girl in a movie that’s a true representation of our community, one that isn’t just about a young white woman being the victim of a racist act.
I know that a lot people who’ve seen this movie, and I’m sure a lot who haven’t, are thinking about how it represents the struggles of black people.
So how can you tell when a movie is truly making a statement about the world, and how it’s able to make a connection between the experiences of black girls and the world?
That’s what I wanted to do with this series, and in this post, I wanted you to find out.
