#BlackWomenDirect

#BlackWomenDirect. The hashtag #BlackWomenDirect is a celebration. #BlackWomenDirect is a movement aimed at celebrating the accomplishments of black women who dare to create. Below is a list of Black women who have directed film, television, and web programs.  This list is a living document,  growing and evolving as more add their names to the sisterhood of black women filmmakers.  Know someone who should be added to the list?
