“one of the most powerful and inspiring documentaries of our era”
– Robin Kelley, Historian and author Freedom Dreams: The Black Radical Imagination
Three remarkable girls enter ninth grade at top schools, where they confront for the first time, a world very different from the one they come from.
With indomitable teenage spirit, they grapple with a culture steeped in traditions, ideas, and biases of the past.
A moving and provocative story told from the perspective of the girls themselves, their freshness and honesty pierce preconceived notions about race, class, culture, and girlhood. They challenge “belonging” to encompass a larger sense of experience and history.
