It’s taken almost a year, but as I said with the first
episode ( http://blogs.indiewire.com/shadowandact/must-watch-trailer-for-short-film-headed-for-cannes-black-girls-code-youll-love-it?fb_action_ids=491530264246157&fb_action_types=og.likes&fb_ref=.UXw1Oqx1A4g.send&fb_source=other_multiline&action_object_map=%5B369213206521315%5D&action_type_map=%5B%22og.likes%22%5D&action_ref_map=%5B%22.UXw1Oqx1A4g.send%22%5D#">HERE), I dare not to be moved by this new episode for the inspirational web
series Black Girls Code.
Directed by Shanice
Malakai Johnson, the series focuses on the Black Girls Code movement created
by Kimberly Bryant, which is an
organization with the mission to “push forth the notion that, yes, little
girls of color can code too. They can invent, build and create. They can move a
nation and they can change the world.
Through workshops on coding, science and app building, Black Girls Code
is creating a new set of pioneers."
The web series will concentrate on the lack of women (and
men, too) of color in STEM (Science, Technology,
Engineering and Mathematics), as well as the active role BGC has taken
within the digital divide.
The first episode focused on the movement’s activities in
the San Francisco Bay Area, where BGC
is headquartered. But in Episode 2, we see how the movement has expanded its
reach into the Miami/Dade County
area (and, no doubt, one hopes soon to
other cities as well).
Take a look at Episode 2:
