Black creatives are important. Black womxn creatives are especially important and necessary for envisioning our future. They push the limits and tell stories we love, make imges we never forget, write poems that touch us deeply, and author books that we return to again and again.
Hear Her host Cartier Georgette sits down with Katrina a.k.a. hip hop artist King Cooley, whose track “Southside AF” is the intro/outro of the Hear Her podcast, and filmmaker Colbie Fray to discuss their creative processes and projects during these unprecedented and uncertain times while navigating their fields as Black womxn. Both of these womxn run businesses here in Atlanta to support other Black creatives: Katrina is Creative Director of @elev8edusc and Colbie founded @dopeaffilms. The group reflects upon how and what they put out for their audience, their business models, and how they relate to current economic, personal, and social conditions. They also weigh in on how this year has provided an opportunity for transformation if we buckle down and do the work.
Tune in to hear about what these Black womxn creatives are up to and how they’re moving forward with their work. King Cooley just dropped album “Heat” today on Spotify and Colbie’s short film “Laundry Day” was just featured in Oz Magazine so go check those out!
