About Atlanta Girl Magazine Atlanta Girl Magazine is a bi-monthly publication catering to girls between the ages of nine to 17.

About America the Beautiful In almost 40,000 media messages a year, youthful Americans are being told that, unless they look like supermodels and rock stars, they’re not good enough for anyone to love. It’s a message that too many people are buying. The hope of achieving these ‘ideals’ has consumers purchasing cosmetics, toiletries, fashion and plastic surgeries at increasingly dramatic rates. Has the ‘American Dream’ changed so much that it can only be achieved once we can perfectly emulate the super thin and sexy images of the ones we admire so much on the big screen and in pictures? Filmmaker Darryl Roberts takes the audience on a two year journey to examine America’s obsession; physical perfection. In America the Beautiful, we learn secrets, confessions, and strikingly harsh realities as Roberts unearths the origins and deadly risks of our nation’s quest for physical perfection. It is a must see for every parent and daughter.
