20 women of color from the film and TV industry have formed The Reel Divas, a group that aims to promote black writers, producers, and directors.
The Reel Divas are award winners, actresses, international and community leaders, producers, professors, directors, and professional women. Some are executives for major companies in film and television, with decades of experience. One of the purposes of The Reel Divas is to advocate for the rights of women in TV and film. The group will focus on being a collective unit to showcase how women are more powerful together than they are individually.
