  • Michèle Stephenson Podcast -- Part 1

    11/05/2018 Duración: 37min

    In this interview, I sat down with filmmaker and former human rights attorney Michèle Stephenson. She tells us about her migration journey as a Haitian-Panamanian woman and the family dynamics she experienced growing up. Michèle shares her unconventional path toward filmmaking and co-founding the Brooklyn based Rada Film Group with her husband Joe Brewster. Michèle emphasizes the need to complicate narratives as a filmmaker of color and to question those who consider themselves allies. As she says, “Practicing the art form is a statement of resistance itself." And that, “I want the stories that I tell to be disruptive.” Adding, “The statement at the end of the story has got to somehow disrupt the system.” Michèle also acknowledges that “I want the process to be as important as the end product, as the end of the story itself.” And that, “I think by taking a critical look at ourselves and our subjects… we are complicating our humanity.” She mentions how “Transformation and impact happens in process.” Adding t

  • The Colored Girls Museum

    01/09/2017 Duración: 01h05min

    In this episode I interviewed Vashti DuBois, Executive Director and Founder of The Colored Girls Museum in Germantown, Philadelphia, PA. Vashti speaks on her background as a leader for numerous non-profit organizations and her path that led to opening the museum. She talks about the concept of the "ordinary-extraordinary" colored girl. As Vashti puts it, “The Colored Girls Museum really does exist […] to remind all of us, to remind myself that my ordinary is really good enough, it really is.” And that, “There’s almost a disdain for the ordinary anything, just like basic is not good enough.” Adding, “We do have this burden of always feeling as though we have to be fierce, we have to be fabulous, we have to be magical, we have to be strong, we have to be powerful.” The Colored Girls Museum opened in 2015 and has a new exhibit opening in September titled, "Urgent Care: A social Care Experiment."
