Black Venus: The Saartjie Baartman Story – Full Film

Too often the stories of Black women never see the light of day let alone make it to film. It’s no surprise that this depiction of the life of Saartjie (Sarah) Baartman was produced in French. I, personally, can’t imagine an American or British filmmaker ever being willing to produce it. The film details Saartjie’s travel from her home in South Africa to London where she became an attraction for Europeans.
