As Black woman we know how important unity and sisterhood is. From our birth sisters to our sorority sisters to our school and work friends that become our sisters. Although these examples of sisterhood are around us every day, the media has a sure way of demeaning as Black women and making us bicker with one another and hate on each other for no reason.
However, there are positive films that are doing more to uplift and promote sisterhood among women. STEP documents the senior year of a girls’ high-school step dance team against the background of inner-city Baltimore. As each one tries to become the first in their families to attend college, the girls strive to make their dancing a success against the backdrop of social unrest in the troubled city.
The film is directed by Amanda Lipitz and produced by Amanda Lipitz and Steven Cantor. It features Blessin Giraldo, Cori Grainger, Tayla Solomon, Gari McIntyre and Paula Dofat. For more info, visit the official site.
