in(HER)view: a conversation with Black women is described as an 8-part bi-weekly series that asks 5 black women the same 8 questions about their lived experiences - from what they love about being black women, to the challenges they face.

The series was created by director, producer and editor, Charla Harlow.

The series was actually launched in May, with its 8th and final episode debuting about a week ago. So we're finding it late. But better late than never, right?

All eight episodes are embedded below, if the idea strikes your fancy:

    I'm disgusted by the previous comments...
    (That being said I understand parts of the previous points made.)

    However to refuse to go outside self to sit before another is pure ego. Unnecessary ego written off as/in sarcasm and/or pessimism.
    Getting pass self is the hardest thing one will ever do... "Just reach for it"

    A very nice idea! I thought all the women were very different and were not the typical "angry black woman". :-)

    LOL *_* I won't even bother. I'm tired of this indignant, pathological, woe-is-me, 'we are the mules of the earth', depressing stuff from BW. Irritates me(as a BW) to the core. If that's not what these videos are about, I apologise.

    I don't get it. Is "Black Woman" some newly discovered species that the people are collecting data on? How does talking with these handful of women shed light on what it means to be a Black women? I guess I would classify as a Black woman ( I don't entirely match with these women), but there are so many variations of Black women out there that this kind of documentary is almost meaningless. It may shed light on these particular Black women, not in a very interesting way IMO, but it is only THEIR story. Not the story of "Black women."

    @ katherine--There have been no coloreds since the 1950's. While you're gawking at other races of people, hop into a time machine and transport yourself into at least the end of last century. The current one appears to be too advanced for you. I am surprised you found your way to a computer.

    Shut the f up Kath. SMH @ colored folks. If most black women you meet "are filled with drama in their lives" that says more about where you live, work, and who you associate with than black women as a group.

  • Katherine | August 28, 2012 8:44 PM

    Saadiyah, spot on. Couldn't agree more with you. I'm not a black woman but the point you make is relevant across any group. Saying that ALL black woman are this way defies a) logic and b) reason. Skin color doesn't define who we are (or aren't). Our minds do. Our beliefs. Our actions. Many of the black woman I see are filled with drama in their lives. Not a positive role model at all. Yet I don't cast out the entire 'race of black women' because of this. To define a group based on something as superficial as skin color, is simply entering into the trap of 'tribalism'. For the same reason racists need to stop making assumptions based on color, so do colored folks themselves. Least the makers of this doco anyway.
