Great Film on Black Women & Girls- Educational Resource
For Our Daughters is a must-see, much-needed documentary that shares stories of resilience, wisdom and a deep-rooted concern for today’s Black girls and young women who are faced with the task of growing up and succeeding in a sexist & racially-challenged society. It is a mixture of cautionary tales, advice and life lessons shared by African American women who aim to inform, motivate and support the next generation of African-American women.
Inspiring, informative and entertaining, For Our Daughters, is best suited for school and academic libraries, and compliments curriculum units on African-American studies, Women studies, Anthropology and Sociology as well as Urban studies. The film is also useful for library collections.
