Sistah Boom: Forty Years in the Streets
Sistah Boom is a women’s samba marching band that has been showing up in the streets at Bay Area demonstrations for 40 years – bringing power, energy, and spirit. The story of Sistah Boom is one of women’s empowerment, queer liberation, and marching for social justice. This sound-rich documentary chronicles the four decades of social movements the band took part in, from the Gay Pride Parade to demonstrations against ICE incarceration.
