    Truth In Reality's Signature #99Seconds Event To Be Held Nationally on Oct 20, 2016


    Truth In Reality, in conjunction with the Ferguson Response Network, has partnered to host our signature #99Seconds event on October 20, 2016 in ten cities across the U.S.  The name #99Seconds is based on the fact that in the US a woman is sexually assaulted every 90 seconds and battered every 9 seconds. 

    This national initiative to honor the experiences of survivors of domestic and sexual violence is being held in light of the recent controversy around director, writer and actor Nate Parker's film Birth of a Nation and his sexual assault trial.  With very little exception, the entire narrative has been focused on the accused perpetrators. Truth In Reality CEO Sil Lai Abrams and Ferguson Response Network founder Leslie MacFadyen decided to partner on this initiative in an effort to challenge society's tendency to erase or silence victims and survivors by re-centering them and providing a platform for their voices and experiences to be heard.

    Click the following links for times & locations for the current list of events in our host cities:

    1. New York, NY
    2. Houston, TX
    3. Chicago, IL

    Support the Rededefining HERstory™ Documentary on Crowdrise

    Thank you to everyone who supported our Redefining HERstory™ Documentary crowdfunding campaign on Crowdrise at http://bit.ly/Support-RedefiningHERstory. Redefining HERstory™ is a groundbreaking feature-length documentary that aims to re-affirm the power and redefine the dominant media narrative of one of the world’s most exploited demographics: Black and Afro-Latina women and girls. We envision our film will expose the truth about the origin and damage of these images, explore the diversity and beauty of black womanhood, encourage adults and young people to make informed, thoughtful decisions about the media they consume, and spark a national dialogue on the need to diversify the existing images of black and Afro-Latina women across all media platforms.

    Redefining HERstory is more than a film…it’s a movement.
