A significant exploration of the cultural shift in North American beauty standards towards embracing Black female aesthetics and features while exposing the deliberate and often dangerous portrayals of Black women in the media. Partially set at the 50th Anniversary of the Miss Black America Pageant, a beauty pageant created as a political protest, this provocative presentation is told from the POV of women who aren’t afraid to challenge conventional beauty standards and deconstruct what we understand about race and the power behind beauty.
