A searing exploration of femininity and womanhood, Every Black Girl Dances hits the truth-telling mark. Fans of Jayne Allen’s Black Girls Must Die Exhausted and Candice Carty-Williams’ Queenie will rejoice at the tight writing and honesty.
JC Burke catapulted straight from film school to Hollywood darling, churning out “Black trauma” films that have made her a household name, but at what price? When she abandons the set of her latest production to flee to her hometown Parable, Texas, JC is forced to reconsider the career that made her a superstar, as well as reexamine her deteriorating relationship with her producing partner, Hudson Pyke.
A romantic connection with high school Media Technology teacher Luke Favors (dubbed The Hottie Professor in a viral social media post) alleviates a bit of the sting from her disappointments, but is Luke enough to keep JC away from Hollywood forever, or will she return to the privilege she turned her back on?
