Our purpose is to encourage and uplift African American girls that choose to defy the degrading stereotypes of scantily-clad and sexually suggestive African American women present in some hip-hop music videos.
My sum is greater than all my “parts”….
The Anti-Video Girl website will serve as a clearinghouse of information for teens, parents, advocates, healthcare practitioners, educators, and others that seek information necessary to counter the destructive images and media depictions of African American females in hip-hop music and videos.
Who is the Anti-Video Girl?
The Anti-Video Girl has drawn a line in the sand to distinguish herself from her video vixen counterpart. She is by no means perfect, but the Anti-Video Girl has enough self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-awareness to know that her sum is greater than all of her “parts.” She is focused on academics, sports, family, friends, and her future. The Anti-Video Girl is not immune to peer-pressure, but is confident enough in herself and her abilities to set and accomplish goals.
