Reimagine storytelling in a time for revolution

"Ain't your superwoman" - black women, reproductive justice and harmful narratives
One of my favorite quotes is 'there is no revolution without art' ... There is no way to push culture and the conversation without art. There is no way to influence the problematic narratives we're taught that are false or push that kind of change without art.
So many times when we talk about representation it's so much more than oh I just want to see myself.... seeing yourself and having other people see you means the world. Especially in a day and age in which media has becomes one of the main ways in which we receive information, in which we understand or contextualize our world, it sets social norms.
We collaborate with writers, producers, executives, and influencers to raise industry standards and change representations of Black people and issues affecting us throughout the media landscape. We are dedicated to building power for Black writers and producers and creating more accurate and balanced representations of Black people, more authentic Black stories, more diversity in writers’ rooms, and holding media companies who propagate racist content accountable.
What we see onscreen plays a profound role in shaping American culture. It has an undeniable effect on public perception and how police, judges, teachers, employers, and voters treat Black people. Yet far too much of the content Hollywood produces promote dangerous misunderstandings. That’s why we tell Black stories.
