"A crackling energy drives this far-reaching commentary on young black America." – ScreenDaily
Inspired by true stories.
A hip-hop musical fantasia, My Name Is Myeisha chronicles the life of a young black woman in California's Inland Empire. Set in 1998, Myeisha Jackson (screen newcomer Rhaechyl Walker) vividly recounts the events of her a life leading to a fateful encounter with local police. Based on the internationally acclaimed, NAACP-award-winning stage play Dreamscape by Rickerby Hinds and anchored by extraordinary performances from Walker and John "Faahz" Merchant, My Name Is Myeisha is a profoundly moving story of self-discovery and the moments that make us who we are.
