Aishah Shahidah SimmonsAishah Shahidah Simmons is an American documentary filmmaker, author, educator, and activist based in Philadelphia, PA.
Her 2006 film ''NO! The Rape Documentary'' addressed sexual assault in the black community, a topic that has, according to Cynthia Greenlee-Donnell "traditionally been so attuned to racism outside that it has largely turned a deaf ear and a blind eye to gender violence within." In a review of ''NO!'', Andrea Williams described the film as, "notable, not only for its critical exposition, but also for the ways in which it places Black women's voices at the center of its narrative."
