Black Girl in Suburbia Film Screening
Thursday April 20, 2017 @ 4:00 pm
Oregon City Public Library

Black Girl In Suburbia is a documentary directed by local filmmaker, Melissa Lowery, that looks into the experiences of black girls growing up in predominately white communities. This is a different look into suburbia from the perspective of women of color. This film explores through professional and personal interviews the conflict and issues black girls have relating to both white and black communities.

Melissa Lowery was born in Portland, Oregon and raised in West Linn.  Black Girl In Suburbia is her first feature documentary based off of her own experiences growing up as one of very few African-Americans in a predominately white suburb.
