Black and Brown women have been integral to the filmmaking art form since its dawning.


Names like Tressie Sounders, sisters Adriana and Delores Ehlers, Maria P. Williams, Eslanda Robeson, Zora Neale Hurston, Gabriela von Bussenius, and Drusilla Dunjee Houston should be known by all filmmakers. The roles these women played in creating cultural voices through cinema impacted today's Women of Color who are film directors, writers, producers, and actors. They boldly challenged a racist, patriarchal industry. Truly, because they were, we are.
