If The Boondocks was feminist, it may look like this…



Follow the self proclaimed radical Black feminist, Naima Pepper (who has a White mama), as she deals with the contradictions of her own life in various ways—lashing out in Tourette Syndrome-like rants about gentrification, white supremacy, and apathy. Both she and her fraternal twin brother, Miles Pepper grew up in a mostly White and Asian neighborhood. Miles Pepper reflects a popular culture aesthetic and mindset. As they navigate through the world with their best friends, Renee Aanjay Brown and El Ramirez, their identities and neighborhood start to change in front of their eyes. 




Meet the characters (left to right): Renee Aanjay Brown, Miles Pepper, Naima Pepper, and El Ramirez.
