Black Women Are Scary is a radio-dramatic podcast that celebrates and produces short horror stories by BIPOC authors.
"Wham!" is the story of Aquilah and friends who are the best students at MLK Middle School until their classmates break out into mysterious rage episodes. Our heroes must break the rules to find out the truth and save their school. And their futures.
The film is part of the larger educational project Cold Sweat, which uses scary stories to facilitate discussions with young audiences about what scares us and how to face the monsters together.
For more information on upcoming screenings and bringing the project to your school or community center, please go to Cold Sweat.
