By the time O'Shay graduated from Northwestern University, she was already well-versed in cinematography and film, but the leading ladies in Unapologetic — Bonsu, Bahhs and May — were already well-known in Chicago for other reasons. Bella Bahhs is a Chicago-based rapper and youth advocate, Bonsu is a writer and National Public Policy Chair of the Black Youth Project 100, and May is an activist, public speaker and cofounder of Assata's Daughters. The common thread between these four young women is their passion for social justice issues, their determination to empower young women of color, and their desire to keep their rebel spirit unapologetically lit. Unapologetic is due out next year.
