The Trial

Share this page:
What can an African-American woman do when her coworkers harass her about her identity?

The Trial of One Short-Sighted Black Woman vs. Mammy Lousie and Safreeta Mae takes it up with the media by suing the negative stereotype caricatures.

Safreeta Mae and Mammy Louise are a couple of African-American women summoned up from the time of plantation slavery to defend themselves in court. Safreeta is sassy and flirtatious, and Mammy is jovial and self-sacrificing, but we quickly discover that they both hold secrets that the writers in Hollywood could have never imagined.

Based on true historical content, the Trial is both hilarious and shocking, and asks us to take a long look at American history before we make any conclusions about who is to blame for negative images of African-American women.
