Ain't No Better
This is the first piece to a much bigger project that will explore and give recognition to Black women who played mammies in early films and television shows. They are not to be looked down upon or forgotten. They are not to be pitied. They gave life to the films and television shows they made cameo appearances in. Without these women I wouldn't even be able to hold a camera, let alone be the revolutionary Black woman filmmaker that I am today. So to all the Black women before me who wore aprons on a screen in front of an audience that couldn't appreciate the beauty in front of them... I see you. I thank you. And I love you.
