What 20 years ago was a positive look at four African American teenage girls growing up in an urban housing project in East Dallas, today remains an uplifting film that goes beyond cultural stereotypes.

During a Dallas Girl’s Club meeting, the program director invites the girls to a gala dinner to meet important black women who have “achieved something” emphasizing to the girls that it is important to be exposed to activities outside the projects.

The film captures the energy, determination, and creativity of the four friends and reminds the audience that the hopes and dreams of these girls, like those of many teenagers, may come true.

A film to inspire girls from all backgrounds and ethnicities.
