Event description

Description

"The first image [I had in my head] was to place a brown girl in that role of Meg, a girl traveling to different planets and encountering beings and situations that I'd never seen a girl of color in,” Ava DuVernay (Entertainment Weekly)


Historically, Black women and girls have been symbolically annihilated from history books and overall media representation. This adversely impacts their sense of worth and value. It limits their ambition to stereotypes and stigma that are prevalent in mainstream media. As a means to advance our mission to push past stereotypes by exposing girls to the powerful narratives and contributions of Black girls in spaces that have otherwise muted their impact, Girls Like Me Project will host an exclusive screening of the Disney Film, A Wrinkle in Time. This film, directed by acclaimed filmmaker Ava Duvernay, starring Oprah Winfrey and Storm Reid will help GLMPI in our goal to inspire girls to dream big and identify themselves as change agents, navigating experiences and locales beyond the normalized depictions of violence, misogyny, and hyper-sexualized images and media they often consume. The screening will feature:


  • Film Screening

  • STEAM panel discussion

  • Mini-STEAM expo

  • STEM personality quiz

  • Giveaways and prizes

  • Girl-centered resources and social services
