Three years ago, Russell Simmons found his way into the #MeToo movement when several women accused the disgraced mogul of sexual misconduct and rape.
The land-slide of alleged sexual assaults, spanning women across all genres of the media arena, was one of the first cases to feature Black women as sexual abuse victims in #MeToo.
Predictably, and unfortunately, these stories were immediately met with backlash and skepticism.
The film’s center comes from Drew Dixon’s harrowing experience, working her way up from helping out in her mother’s mayoral cabinet (first Black female mayor of DC Sharon Pratt) to becoming an executive at Def Jam and Arista.
After several inappropriate run-ins, Dixon says that Simmons eventually assaulted her under the ruse of listening to a new demo.
