I Like it Like That

Students from the New School are trying to shed some light on 100 Hispanic Women, Inc. through dialog with 90s cinema. Darnell Martin’s 1994 dramedy  “I Like it Like That” details the seemingly insurmountable hardships facing Latina women in New York that hope to achieve anything and it is 100 Hispanic Women’s mission and business to see that Spanish speaking women from all walks of life succeed in politics, medicine and any field that will shape their own destiny and those of the communities around them.

    Reminds me of the program “Like It Is” depicting African American problems and issues concerning the African American community and what they faced as people of color. The only difference I can detect is that “I like It Like That” focus on Latina women in the community with the same problems and issues with a goal in helping them to achieve a better life for them and their family.

  4. It’s great to see how students are using 90’s cinema as a visual and creative platform to spread the mission and the importance of 100 Hispanic Women Inc. Organization’s such as 100 Hispanic Women Inc. are so important in our society considering Spanish speaking women need to have access to the proper tools and resources that will help them succeed and follow their dreams, despite barriers that may stand in their way.

    I’m glad to see an organization help Latino women. I love to see younger Spanish speakers have big dreams and choosing to stay with their roots, rather them hide who they are. Thanks for sharing! Melissa Cherizola

    I think you both truly captured the 100 Hispanic Women, Inc. in a way that opens the audiences eyes and needed to be see to understand and learn from the film. You both did a terrific job and definitely opened my eyes. Congrats 🙂
