With all the hubbub about ‘The Help,’ a group of Black female historians have made their opposition to the film known.

The Association of Black Women Historians recently released a statement criticizing the  movie, which chronicles the story of African-American maids in Jackson, Mississippi during the 1950′s and 1960s, Entertainment Weekly reports.

“Despite efforts to market the book and the film as a progressive story of triumph over racial injustice, The Help distorts, ignores, and trivializes the experiences of black domestic workers,” the statement read.
