ReelYouth Black Brilliance 2.0 Virtual Film Program 2021

in partnership with Telus STORYHIVE

This film was created as part of the Black Brilliance 2.0 virtual film program, an all-Black space for youth of African descent to empower themselves and tell their stories. Participants explored their personal experiences of being Black (and brilliant!) through poetry and film, and the results are a commitment to Reel Youth’s ongoing work to combat racism everywhere and amplify Black voices.

This film is a poem, a love letter to my inner child.
