Alfreda's Cinema Presents
A Powerful Thang

Directed by Zeinabu irene Davis

Q&A with Zeinabu Irene Davis, Asma Feyinijmi, John Earl Jelks and professor/author, Christina Baker

The scarcity of healthy Black love stories in film sounds absurd until you realize how terribly true it is. With nuance and style, Zeinabu Irene Davis's narrative strokes the chemistry between two Black characters with humor and honesty, making the film a wonderlust for generations influenced by the systemic conditioning of (Black) love as an afterthought, invariably stemming from the once illegality of Black unions.
