Filmmakers prepare to explore "Black Girl Training"
What if you felt like a stranger in your own community? It was Emily Kuester’s experience as a young black girl adopted by white parents in rural Wisconsin when she moved to Milwaukee for college.
Emily, now a 22-year old college graduate and film producer with 371 Productions in Milwaukee’s Third Ward, is teaming up with director Santana Coleman to explore the idea in a short film called Black Girl Training. The film recounts her experiences learning what it’s like to be black from a unique perspective.
The idea for the project has garnered a lot of support. The pair has already raised more than $10,000 dollars through online crowdfunding.
On CBS 58 Sunday Morning, Amanda Porterfield sat down with Emily and Santana to discuss their project.
