In celebration of Women’s History Month, and throughout the month of March, the Auburn Avenue Research Library (AARL) will screen a variety of films and documentaries, exploring Black Womanhood. The screening will be followed by a discussion portion,featuring guest speakers from the Motherless Daughters Foundation.

About For Ahkeem:
After a school fight lands 17-year old Daje Shelton in a court-supervised alternative high school, she's determined to turn things around and make a better future for herself in her rough St. Louis neighborhood. But focusing on school is tough as she loses multiple friends to gun violence, falls in love for the first time, and becomes pregnant with a boy, Ahkeem, just as Ferguson erupts a few miles down the road. Through Daje's intimate coming-of-age story, For Ahkeem illuminates challenges that many Black teenagers face in America today, and witnesses the strength, resilience, and determination it takes to survive.
