Brilliant & Brown

The What

For those of you that know me well you understand that I am always seeking to build something. Many of you have asked me “what do you want to do once you are finished with your degree?” which can be a very challenging question to answer.  As a Community Psychologist the possibilities are endless since our skills are meant to be adaptable to the needs of the communities we work to empower.  However, as I come to a close of my PhD journey I have begun to contemplate how I might use my skills, knowledge and credentials as a platform to continuously bring light to communities of color. How do I hope to accomplish this you ask?

Through digital story telling!

To give you an idea of what type of content I would like to create please check out my Brilliant & Brown  FB page.

The Why

So many of the current representations of communities of color circulated by mass media lack positivity, hope and innovation. Therefore, I am seeking your support through financial contributions to kick start my journey into changing that narrative of detriment into one of progress. I want to tell you a story that is born out of triumph (and not defeat). I want to paint you a picture of perseverance (instead of pain). I want to capture voices that encourage creativity (not simply survival).

My goal is to accomplish this through my brainchild “Brilliant & Brown”.

The How

Brilliant & Brown is a movement dedicated to celebrating the brilliance and beauty that resides within communities of color. My goal is to curate and craft poignant and positive representations of progress[MB1] . Although I do not have much experience in documentary film making I do have access to a wonderful local creative hub here in the Triangle. I would like to begin with basic equipment in hopes that success from future projects will allow me to expand my toolkit.
