Largely ignored by the society that they live in, Black girls create their own stories that acknowledge and authenticate their existence. Curated by Mahlet Cuff, Memories of Girlhood, dives into the vulnerabilities and intricacies of what it means to be a Black girl and to have autonomy of one’s own girlhood. Featuring fiction and documentary films, Memories of Girlhood examines moments filled with joy, awkwardness, hope and resistance.
