When you make (and consume) as much popcorn as we do, eventually it doesn’t seem so crazy to start making movies too. It could be all that Little Kettle That Could or White Cheddar Go Getter or Butter Believe It or Caramel-Diem… or maybe it’s just a sugar rush — but we wake up every morning pretty convinced we are all full of endless potential to do awesome stuff that makes the world a better place for everyone.
Enter Black Girls Cheer. Our first documentary explores the creation of this organization that’s purpose is to help young black girls see themselves represented in the cheerleading community and empower them to be themselves. As founder Dr. Sharita Richardson says, “If they can’t see it, they can’t be it.”
We hope this film will inspire thoughtful conversations and help bring the world closer together.
Thank you to our panelists for a beautiful beginning to our film discussion series: Jasmine Cooper, Susan Lucci, Dr. Sharita Richardson, and Dr. John Duffy.
And major props to Ben Vogel and Morgan Carnevale of Home Alone Studio for making a film we’re so incredibly proud of. We can’t wait to share it with everyone.
