Storyline

Actress Terri J. Vaughn sits down with 25 of Hollywood's African-American actresses to discuss how they deal with being in today's entertainment industry. While media floods unrealistic ideas to the general public about these women, this documentary allows viewers a candid, unscripted exposure into the minds and hearts of these actresses. Ms. Vaughn sincerely removes these women from the characters we know, and reveals the essence of real women. These actresses open up to talk about their fears, disappointments, successes, families, and careers. The state of "Black Hollywood" is in a serious quandary, and these women hold no tongues when discussing their plights and obvious issues that are often quieted. Yet in that same moment of seriousness, each actress is able to relish in the splendor they bring to our television and film screens Written by cas sigers

I hope this finds wider release!

An emotional, funny, and razor-sharp look at African-American actresses struggling to succeed in Hollywood without losing everything they hold dear.

The actresses speak for themselves, and all of them are a delight. Highlights were Jasmine Guy, Vanessa Williams, Tasha Smith, and Regina King, but especially Sheryl Lee Ralph, who set the screen on fire. Among the younger actresses, Meagan Good and Malinda Williams are standouts.

Watching this, I couldn't help but contrast the plight of these women, who must smile in the face of unrelenting prejudice, with that of the apparently endless series of white actresses checking into rehab (but still getting contracts).

This documentary will make you laugh, flinch, and cry. I want to see it again!
