African American Women - Please Pay Attention To Our Sisters Struggling To Survive Sexual Assault In The Congo!

I just finished watching the documentary and I am honestly to upset to comment at this time. I strongly encourage everyone to see this powerful film. Send the filmmaker an e-mail and thank her for bringing this painful, enraging, yet insightful, even hopeful story to the public eye. The silence about rape in the Congo must be ended now!

I'll have to check around to see if it'll be released on DVD-I'm sure it's too graphically explicit to air on network TV w/out a lot of editing, and the WHOLE story needs to be shown.

i read this on gina's blog, but could not comment. i am going to have to pray a lot before i watch this...i've read and seen pictures and listened to survivors from there speak. that was enough to wretch my heart with pain.

Thank you so very much for sharing this bit of information. I will, indeed, do as suggested and send an email of thanks to the film's producer (MS. L.Jackson).

While in Darfur (several years ago) there were similar atrocities taking place. At times it feels as if we're swimming up stream, but life experience has taught me that every life touches every other life. We can, at the very least, allow our voices to be heard. Shout it from the roof-tops if necessary...but do something! Unfourtnately, the majority chooses to do nothing until it touches them personally. Well this is PERSONAL! We need to see the connectedness we all share...now, before it's too late.

Kindest Regards,
Kathryn
