The Art of Love and Struggle
I went to a screening today for a documentary called “The Art of Love & Stuggle.” It was a documentary featuring 12 women- artists, singers- emcees- activists- poets and writers including radio personality and writer Raqiyah Mays, former VIBE editor Elizabeth Mendez Berry, Def Poet Claudia Alick (who was very quirky and refreshing to view).
The doc features these women and their experiences, struggles and motivations. It dives deep into the movement of female artistry, dealing with political issues and cultural issues. These 12 females all do different things but have one connection, through hip hop and their personal struggles and this documentary is the outlet of that.
There was a Q&A following the documentary had the director of the documentary there, Jessica Habie.
