My Slave Sister Myself

Gwen Ragsdale


My Slave Sister Myself is a gripping, documentary film about the Transatlantic Slave Trade, its effect on enslaved Africans and its lasting impact on African Americans today. First person narratives describe slave womens traumatic experiences and draw a parallel between feelings deeply embedded in the souls of todays Black woman. The similarities are stunning! The film also exposes how slavery shaped perceptions about Black manhood. This ground breaking film pays homage to African slave descendants and sheds light on perceptions about todays Angry Black Woman and the Black Mans Sexual Prowess. Men and women; young and old alike will greatly benefit from the information this film conveys. My Slave Sister Myself will elevate your consciousness and enable you to gain an awareness of your own inner slave sister or brother.
