A gir’s determination to follow her own hoop dreams makes her a college basketball star and the publisher of the first ever women-in-sports magazine. Using personal narrative, still photography and stop animation, Donna Carter’s 1997 short film Tomboy is an imaginative autobiographical account of an African American tomboy’s journey to success and self-acceptance.
