Notes about Black Bodies


Quote by the Director

"I want allies and other racialized communities that aren't Black to come away from this film knowing that they can make changes. I hope that Black Bodies puts people in a position where they can feel the emotions of what it's like to be Black at this time and, from there, they can make ripples within their families, workplaces and communities and make sure these spaces are safe for Black and Indigenous people."
-- Kelly Fyffe-Marshall (source)
