MadameNoire Featured Video

Growing up black in suburbia, it can be just as difficult relating to the black community as it is your white neighbors. I’ve met enough women to know that the struggle of being “too white to be black  and too black to be white” is real. Anew documentary directed by Melissa Lowery will explore the conflicts and issues young women of color experience growing up in predominantly white neighborhoods.

Check out the trailer for “Black Girls in Suburbia” below. Can you relate to the issues these women experienced growing up? It’s wonderful that this new aspect of the black female experience is being explored. Perhaps it will be the antidote to Good Hair.
