Young Black Women in TV & Film Conference The legacy of our images.
"We are working towards shaping a new lens--crafting a new collective cinematic framework--that re-imagines and recreates the diversity that lives our symbolic world." *
The Young Black women in TV and Film conference was born out of a need to exchange information with impressionable young Black women about the power and legacy of their visual images. The images they create, share and consume all have power. We aim to bring together Black female artists, practitioners and scholars to engage in meaningful discussions about the current state of Young Black Women in TV and Film and how those images translate to the public about the value of Black womanhood in America. We want to help increase the presence and impact of Black women in Hollywood by starting the dialogue and training for our future practitioners early.
Therefore, our goal is to give participants some new tools to join the industry and create images of us that promote healthy, happy, diverse and successful Black women.
