Wrapped up a session with Director Rachel Raimist, you may not know the name, but you are def familiar with her work. Rae and I go waaaaaaaay back, back to the early days of the internet… Back to when I created b-gyrl the first site dedicated to women in hip hop… And sistas like us who paid it forward by creating spaces for other sistas to shine. b-gyrl featured and interviewed Rae about her documentary “Nobody Knows My Name” ft Asia One, Lescha, Lisa & Medusa, DJ Symphony.
Those were the days. Then life happens. We all strayed away from what originally brought us together but kept in touch over the years through social media. It’s funny how life goes full circle. I found myself flirting with the idea bringing b-gyrl back and yesterday on a humbug reached out to Rae for an interview, little did I know her journey had also gone full circle… the catalyst, another sista in hip hop Ava DuVernay. Wait til you hear her inspirational story.
You go girl!
