This is an educational film produced by college students for a Women and Media Course at Georgia State University that is sparking conversation about the portrayal of Black Women in Hip-Hop andR&B music videos….
“This documentary is about the representation of African American Women in Music Videos and its impact in our society.The representation of African American women in music videos has had a negative light for a few decades. African American women have been displayed as an accessory in most rapper’s musical visual aids.
