Event Details

Filmed in Oregon, Black Girl In Suburbia is the feature debut documentary from Melissa Lowery that looks into the experiences of black girls growing up in predominately white communities. This is a different look into suburbia from the perspective of women of color. This film explores through professional and personal interviews the conflict and issues black girls have relating to both white and black communities.

Black Girl In Suburbia intends to spark an open dialogue about race, identity, and perspective among all people. In hopes that these discussions will allow us to look at perceptions of ourselves, others and the community we live in as a whole.


Please join us for the N/NE Portland Premiere of the film and contribute to the community discussion to occur afterwards.
