Documentary Highlights Youngster's Self Image
The self image of black teens, and children is examined in the documentary "A Girl Like Me." Teenaged filmmaker Kiri Davis produced the seven minute video through Reel Works Teen Filmmaking in New York. In the video, Davis replicates a doll study that was originally conducted by sociologist Kenneth Clark during the segregation era. Clark's study helped prove that segregation was psychologically damaging. Davis' video indicates that youngsters are still dealing with similar issues.
