Our third Black Brilliance film program (and first in person!) was a place for youth of African descent to collaborate to tell their stories. Facilitated by the amazing Mariam Barry, Moumy Mbacké, and Michael Swana, participants explored their personal experiences of Blackness through film. Their films span drama and documentary, and are part of Reel Youth’s ongoing work to combat racism and amplify Black voices.

In our work we strive to embody what we hope to see in the world—a just humanity and community in which people are free to be themselves fully and without fear. A community where no one is exiled or silenced because of gender, gender expression, race, color, ethnic or national origin, religion, sexual/affectional orientation, age, class, physical character or disability. We believe in the power of storytelling to make connections across difference.
