GIRLS GIRLS GIRLS: Nothing Butt The Naked Truth


graphic design by Annysa Lamantia

From magazine covers, to billboards, to strip clubs, the slogan, “girls, girls, girls” dominates our culture. Girls! Girls? Girls. began in 2010 as a one woman satirical play written by and performed by Marjuan Canady which examined the black woman under the lens of public opinion. After four years of developing and performing the stage play at national theaters and over fifty colleges and high schools nationwide, Girls! Girls? Girls. is now a feature performance documentary.


Marjuan Canady

In the film, Canady and her comrades take their wit “to the streets” to gain perspective from entertainers, scholars, entrepreneurs, athletes, students and community organizers on the 21st century black female image and other issues such as beauty, health, education and sex.
