Don't Lose Your Voice Trying to be Heard
Social media turned creativity into content and artists into content creators. But, what if you have something more to say beyond recycling trends or presenting a carefully curated social media feed? How do you tell an entertaining, informative, and/or educational story reflective of your community in an industry that often limits representation to tired tropes? Culture critic, Dr. Saida Grundy sits down with three creatives spanning the media landscape - Munirah Jones, creator of The Mound, OWN Network’s first animated series, Dominic Lawson, host of award-winning podcast Black is America, and documentary producer, Enora Moss - to uncover how they leveraged everyday technology to carve out their own creative lanes to tell the stories they wanted to tell without sacrificing their soul.
