Just like we supported the filmmakers and actors for a Black Panther we need to support our black female directors as well. These people. These black people. Will be able to tell fantasy stories with people who look like us. Only if we support it ! As black screen writers directors producers etc. we have to prove to the Hollywood executive
colonizers white Hollywood exclusive that can greenlight our stories (Greenling get give money and the go ahead to make your film or tv show) we can be just as diverse in other areas. Of ethnicities and Culture and knowledge of other experiences with other peoples lives. So just don’t support a movie with black people in it or just a black director support that black director in everything that they do or else our stories and stories that we want to be told in a different way won’t be able to be told because you’re not supporting any of their other projects. It is us the movie goer who makes or breaks these actresses and actors and producers and directors careers if you don’t want the typical slave narrative
movies and the street slum type of stories if you’re tired of Tyler Perry’s stories and you want more of black panther or other fantasy stories with black people as the main characters you have to support or black people in everything that they make .
