About The Film

An extension of Renae Bluitt's In Her Shoes blog, 'She Did That.' offers an intimate peek inside the lives of four Black women entrepreneurs who continuously raise the glass ceiling for future generations.

What drives Black women to turn their obstacles into opportunities and passions into profit? 'She Did That.' seeks to answer this question with the goal of inspiring the next generation of change agents.

Spotlighting well-respected industry leaders through exclusive, never-seen-before footage, 'She Did That.' features vulnerable conversations with four fly female entrepreneurs - Luvvie Ajayi (New York Times best-selling author, speaker and digital strategist), Lisa Price (founder, Carol’s Daughter), Melissa Butler (founder, The Lip Bar) and Tonya Rapley (founder, My Fab Finance.) Their powerful testimonies as to how grit and perseverance set the stage for success reminds audiences that Black women are indeed bosses in business, embarking on their own ventures at six times the national average. 'She Did That.' is a timely and poignant documentary on Black women entrepreneurs who are building legacies and making history - a conversation that should not be missed.
