I know all of you remember the big Cosmo GIRL controversy over Kiri Davis’s film A Girl Like Me.
Well after all of that drama, the winner of the contest has finally been announced. Kiri won the Take Action Hollywood Film Contest! Thanks to regular reader Kezia for letting me know.
Kiri Davis will walk away with a $10,000 grant from Take Action Hollywood, a Windows Vista Ultimate laptop, an iPod Shuffle, and a Target gift card. And the respect of women of color around the world who were touched by her powerful message. I sincerely hope that her victory did not spring from the controversy. The quality of her work is award-worthy, and that’s undeniable.
