QUEENS GIRL IN THE WORLD

Written by Caleen Sinnette Jennings

Directed by Paige Hernandez

Queens Girl in the World looks at one young woman’s journey of self-discovery at the onset of the Civil Rights-era. It chronicles the misadventures of bright-eyed, brown-skinned Jacqueline Marie Butler, whose sudden transfer from a protective, middle class upbringing in 1950s Queens to a progressive, predominantly-Jewish private school in Greenwich Village. Funny,poignant, and filled with life — all punctuated with the irresistible sounds of Motown.
