What Do You Mean I Can't Change the World?: Film
Jemmar tells the story of how she went from hating how she looked, to a realisation of the injustices that made her feel that way, to proud acceptance of herself as a beautiful, working class, black young woman. She is now an activist, working for social justice and inspiring other young people to campaign for the issues that affect their lives. Told by Jemmar Samuels. Directed by Adam Tyler.
