Please join i am OTHER and Significant Productions at Samsung 837 as we celebrate Women’s History Month with an exclusive screening of the film ROXANNE ROXANNE, the life story of American hip-hop pioneer and rapper Roxanne Shante.

ROXANNE ROXANNE shares the positive message that there’s light at the end of the tunnel and no matter what obstacles you’re faced with, you can overcome them.
