NO! The Rape Documentary is the 2006-released, Ford Foundation-funded, groundbreaking feature length film that explores the international atrocity of rape of cisgender women by cisgender men, and other forms of sexual assault through the first person testimonies, scholarship, spirituality, activism, and cultural work of Black people in the United States. Produced, written, and directed over a period of 12-years, by child sexual abuse and adult rape survivor Aishah Shahidah Simmons, NO! also explores how rape is used as a weapon of homophobia.
