Written by Ryan Carson: Twitter- @sebastiancarson -- IG- @iamsebastiancarson Video Shot and Edited by: Charlton McCollum Email: charltonmac4@gmail.com Spokenevolution.com spokenevolution@gmail.com We have seen the different memes and saying that use derogatory terms ("B*tches be like" "H*es be like") to explain a certain group of people's actions or characteristics. This poem was written by Poet Sebastian Carson to challenge the trendy "Be Like" sayings and give light to what real women of our generation "Be Like". Media often times forget to display a positive image of women in our society, leaving the derogatory terms and identifications to get the attention. With the help of T-Shirt company "Educated Queens" and "Becoming Queens" (which is a Memphis mentoring organization), as well as insight from an Instagram Media Campaign asking "How would you define a real woman?" on @iamsebastiancarson 's Instagram, as well as Gabrielle Washington, Angelia Lomax, and Paris Gathwright, this poetry production was brought to life to support positive images of women in our society.
