Shakesha Williams: Disrupting Hollywood, Women in Film, Directors and Producers of Color, Female Crews

with Shakesha Williams

Host: Terry Tateossian

On this episode

Writer, Director, Producer & Founder of Harlem Fusion Studios
In 2012, Shakesha founded a new media company with an undertow of empathic acceptance of color, size, and nature. She called it Harlem Fusion Studios and, needless to say, it was unconventional. But since its inception, it has been a cultural beacon in Harlem and beyond as an outlet for culture and democratic development. Hear how stories, and being a bold creative in general, can be the best way to change hearts and minds in a time when the habits and systems of oppression are still exercised. In this episode, Shakesha inspires listeners to take charge of their dreams and turn them into elevated crafts that make unique contributions in this revolutionary time.
