[FIRST LOOK] ‘Black Girl Missing’ Comes To Lifetime Starring Garcelle Beauvais
On Saturday, March 4th, Lifetime premieres a brand new original film, Black Girl Missing, starring veteran actress Garcelle Beauvais. The Black Girl Missing movie is inspired by true stories of missing women of color around the country. It dives into the story of a mother’s fight for justice when her daughter goes missing.
Black Girl Missing movie synopsis
When Cheryl (Garcelle Beauvais) gets into an argument with her daughter Lauren (Iyana Halley) over her desire to drop out of college, she initially thinks Lauren is simply ignoring her calls and texts, but Cheryl soon realizes Lauren is missing. While she attempts to get help from authorities and the media, they quickly dismiss the case, labeling Lauren as a runaway while they are all too consumed with another case – that of a missing white girl. Desperate to find Lauren, Cheryl and her 15-year-old daughter Marley (Taylor Mosby) enlist the help of a dedicated community of amateur internet sleuths to try to find Lauren. Cheryl also discovers the Black and Missing Foundation and is horrified to discover the disparity in how missing persons of color cases are treated with significant lack of media attention and law enforcement resources.
The movie also stars Linda Park, as Elise, a local reporter who tries to help Cheryl, against the orders of the news director.
Derrica and Natalie Wilson, founders of Black and Missing Foundation, serve as consultants on the film. Black and Missing Foundation, Inc. (BAMF) has been established as a non-profit organization whose mission is to bring awareness to missing persons of color, provide vital resources and tools to missing person’s families and friends and to educate the minority community on personal safety. Garcelle Beauvais will also be featured in a new PSA in support of Black and Missing Foundation’s efforts.
