Whose story it it anyway?: Portrayals of black women in Spike Lee and Tyler Perry films

This is the title for my presentation I am doing today for my senior seminar Pan African Studies major. I am discussing the issue of black female identity in Spike Lee and Tyler Perry movies as the leading black filmmakers in the industry. The movies I am focusing on the most are Spike Lee's Shes Gotta Have it and Tyler Perry's reoccurring character of Medea and  his adaptation of "For Colored Girls." I am super nervous my presentation which is open to the public and anyone can come. I hope this goes well.
