My Name Ain’t Eve



MY NAME AIN'T EVE is a short documentary by Urica Pope-Floyd that investigates the use of African sounding and the seemingly made-up names used by African Americans to name their children. Malik, Janaisia, Taejon, Shonntay, Breoshshala, Zeshawn, Chantjuanique, and Da'quandalon. Through intimate interviews with her family, strangers on the street and with scholars Floyd investigates the historical paths, traditions and contemporary methods used to name African American children, as well as the evolution of names for the Black race. The race as a whole has adopted or been labeled by many names including Negro, Colored, Black, Afro American, African American and Person of Color. Everyone has a name and a person's identity is often attached to a name given at birth. What does your name say about you?
