A queer oddball seeks approval from Black peers despite a serious lack of hip-hop credentials and a family that ‘talks white’. Carrie Hawks' quest for a Black Card (undeniable acceptance of my racial identity) takes they from Missouri, to New York, and halfway around the world.
In this animated documentary, the filmmaker examines the expanding Black identity through a personal journey. The film interweaves stories from their great-grandmother’s autobiography, interviews of family & friends, and their hand-drawn memories. Tongue-and-cheek humor makes such a heavy topic easier to digest. The visuals mix Monty Python style cut outs, infographics, watercolor, and a variety of illustrative styles.
