Summary
The filmmaker, an educated African-American journalist, celebrates her 35th birthday and acknowledges to her dismay that she is STILL unmarried. The Wedding Proposal is an at times humorous, at times heart-wrenching personal journey to find out how this could have happened to her. For answers she turns to her family, her friends and "the villain" --Thomas Lopez Pierre, Managing Partner of The Harlem Club, a private social club for professional African-Americans. Any professional man is eligible to join, but women must be under 35, single, have no children; they must also submit head and body photos. Thomas points out the troubling statistic that of those African-Americans that graduate college, 65% are women. That leaves a shortage of available professional men for women like Anjanette. She gathers together her friends, a lively group of "Sassy Sistas", to see how they cope with this reality in their daily lives.Anjanette questions the assumption that you are not successful, no matter how interesting your career, if you are not a wife and mother too. She rethinks her life choices that brought her to this point. And she tries to extricate her true hopes and dreams from all of the societal expectations placed on African-American women, in order to find, and follow, her own path
