Silence: In Search of Black Female Sexuality

Back By Popular Demand! The post show discussions were hot, and people wanted to come back and bring their boyfriends, girlfriends, mothers, sisters, and daughters. So, we’re back for one more special engagement of Mya Baker’s “Silence: In Search of Black Female Sexuality in America.”


Silence: In Search of Black Female Sexuality in Americaby Mya Baker

In the age of misogynist hip-hop, as black women are portrayed as “freaks”, award winning filmmaker Mya B. sets to destroy the present sexual myths about black women in this Telly-winning film that “is necessary” (SugaPoet). Mixing melancholic music, film clips, and hard hitting interviews from everyday people, professors, and music video directors Little X and Nzingha Stewart, Silence: In Search of Black Female Sexuality is “an interesting and gritty glimpse” (PBS) into the sexuality of black women.Written, Produced, and Directed by Mya Baker.

  1. In viewing the pathetic state of the “Black Man in America”, how few are in college, how many are in prison or on probation, how they give Black women HIV in record numbers causing it to be the leading cause of death of Black women aged 24-44, how so many are irresponsible when it comes to being a parent, I am surprised 75%+ of the Black women in America are not Lesbians, turning to each other for support, compassion, companionship, friendship, love, & sex. The odds are incredibly stacked against Black women, of the possibility of finding & enjoying a healthy life sexuality and sexual expression with a Black Man. Black women cannot even find Black male husbands, and even the ones that do…..who’s to say they’ve found healthy sexuality in that union? Doubt it.

  2. Lots of people attended the previous post show discussions. There are pictures posted with our Facebook group that you can look at.

    We had very long post show discussions as audience members had specific opinions about what they saw in the documentary.

    The post show discussions were with the filmmaker, Mya Baker, and the audience members were able to ask questions directly to her. She will be with us again on Friday, August 21st.

    Come out and join us!
