    I was seven years old when I was first called “Black” on the street. I turned around to see who they were talking to, until I realized it was me. That day I understood I was Black, and the laughter it caused among the people nearby made me think that maybe being a Black person wasn´t that great… Did this also happen to other Black women? Negra shows the director in her search of exploring what it means to inhabit Mexico as a Black woman, exposing racisim, resistance, self- acceptance, strategies for trascending stereotypes, and the celebration of their identity.
