On Friday, September 18th at 6 PM,  join us in a zoom conversation with the filmmakers of ALL THE LADIES SAY, a groundbreaking documentary about the Bgirls in Hip Hop - made by the filmmaker, breakdancer, enterpreneur, educator and activist, Rokafella and editor/filmmaker Melissa Ulto.

All the Ladies Say highlights the lives of 6 iconic female Break dancers- Bgirls- and the challenges and triumphs of carving a niche in a male dominated genre from 2006 to 2011. Dancers from the global scene make cameos as well as female Graffiti writers, MC's and the late DJ Pam The Funkstress/RIP.

Stream the film on Friday and then join us for a discussion about the making of the film, how the issues for women in the Hip Hop world have/or have not changed, hear from two of the featured dancers - Aiko Shirakawa and Lady Champ on their lives now- and the plans for a Part Two of the film.  When you RSVP for this event, you will be emailed a link to the film that will free stream all day Friday the 18th, and a zoom link for the talk at 6 PM.
