Sisters in the Life: First Love

A thirty-something black lesbian reflects on falling for her best friend in junior high. Set in the '70's and '90's, this is a delightful tale of love and friendship. Welbon incorporates recreated flash-backs and real reminiscences, mixes media and styles, and throws in an original tune that embodies the essence of young love.
