‘Bama Girl follows one black woman’s quest to become Homecoming Queen at the University of Alabama. The Crimson Tide’s Homecoming has a rich history, tied into centuries of privilege, old money and racial exclusivity. This powerful and enlightening documentary follows Jessica Thomas and her campaign in competition with 15 other co-eds and a strictly segregated Greek system. Along the way, the film reveals surprises about black vs. white, Old South vs. New South, and the microcosm of electoral politics that mirrors the Presidential campaigns today.
