It ain't easy comin' up Black not to mention female, in these so-called United States. Have you ever considered how difficult it is to cultivate a healthy self-image growing up surrounded by the superficial din of white media? In Black Girl Ugly Courtney Dowe, Li’l T. and Chiquita Brooks take you into the collective subconscious of Black Girls trying to hold fast to their love of self.

Through movement, poetry and song they juxtapose their immersion in the "truth" of white girl beauty with the reality of Black Girl Ugly. True to their legacies, these artists offer no tidy endings in this story of black girl victory. The contra-fictions persist – it’s the nature of the beast called Racism.

Ashley Brockington, along with Black Grrrlz R Dee-Licious Productions, presents the third installment of Black Girl Ugly.  www.offoffonline.com called 2009’s Black Girl Ugly “…touching, amusing and ultimately thought provoking…” Ashley is a member of the WOW café theatre collective that is celebrating its 30th year.  Co-producer of the Rivers of Honey cabaret that features women of color, Ashley is also the co-creator of The Cabaret Cataplexy, a show that features performance art, costume design & music within a community of emerging and evolving artists.
