Actresses Meagan Good and Tamara Bass are aiming to revive the theme of Black sisterhood on the big screen with their upcoming film If Not Now, When?
“Do you miss movies like Waiting To Exhale, Set It Off or The Women Of Brewster Place?” Meagan wrote in an Instagram post. “The kind of movies that explored sisterhood and sometimes our struggles. Films that inspired us, empowered us…and made us love ourselves a little bit more? I do. These kind of projects set the tone in our communities for who we are, what we deserve and helped us to see that sky is not even the limit in terms of what we’re capable of achieving.”
Do you miss movies like "Waiting To Exhale", "Set It Off" or "The Women Of Brewster Place"? The kind of movies that explored sisterhood and sometimes our struggles .. Films that inspired us, empowered us ..and made us love ourselves a little bit more.. I do. These kind of projects set the tone in our communities for who we are, what we deserve and helped us to see that sky is not even the limit in terms of what we're capable of achieving. We want to bring those kinds of movies back. If you're interested in getting involved with the industry and a narrative that you can contribute to, please check out our campaign link in my bio.
If Not Now, When? tells the story of four lifelong friends who have grown apart as they’ve ventured into adulthood. Of course, like all Black sisterhood classics, they manage to find their way back to each other after one of them is thrust into a devastating crisis. The resounding message, seen too rarely in films today, is that the bond of sisterhood among women can never truly be broken.
To help bring their vision to life, the ladies have launched an Indiegogo campaign that will allow supporters to donate money to help them reach their $750,000 funding goal.
