DescriptionInspired by the film maker's poem of the same name, BACK INSIDE HERSELF urges African-American woman to reject images placed on her...'from people who don't hear her need and don't need her here'...and discover her own identity. The condensed message of this film goes beyond the African American Woman, to include all women and indeed all oppressed people. It says peel off those armours in which you encase yourself, and find yourself and love yourself as you are, then with this strength face the battles of an unjust world.
