Kyerra Dexter

School: The University of Alabama Undergraduate

Talent: Director, Actor, Writer

About me: As a filmmaker, I hope to change the stereotypes that have been placed on black women. Positive depictions in film can combat the historical views that still reside today. If there were more positive outlooks of women of color, ideas of black women would not only change for other people not in the group, but also for the women themselves. The lack of sound images of black women affects the mentality of young black girls who are feeding into what the media is showing them. I feel that these repeated images of black women are causing young girls to believe that it’s okay to act like the girls in the rap videos they see or cause fights like the reality shows that thrive off of this behavior. As a screenwriter, I want to write movies that are optimistic, factual and even challenging for the betterment of my community. Specifically, I want to go against hip-hop music because it has become a facilitator of poor behavior and ideas. For example, one movie I hope to make deals with a young girl who begins to evaluate the presence of the music in her life and how it influenced some of her bad choices

Currently the captain of Kyerra Dexter's Crew
