Peace & Blessings,

My name is Adrian Elim and I am co-founder & owner of Brothahood Productions. We are an independent, black-owned, production company focused on changing the way the black image is presented in the media. 
We are gearing up to release our newest Black Womens P.O.P. (People Over Perceptions) series, an art series that was designed to celebrate Black women as they choose to define themselves. We would love to have you exclusively premiere the video on your site as this is something that we believe that every Black woman should see. I know that you have featured many of our comrades from The Suburban Plaza to I.Am.Tru Star and hope that you would be willing to feature our project this coming Saturday, May 28th in honor of Betty Shabazz's Earth Day. 

Below you will find a youtube link to the trailer, along with a private link to view the entire video:

If you accept, we also have a write up about the piece:

"Brothahood Productions Presents

2016 Black Womens P.O.P. Art Series


Last year during Women’s History Month, our team dedicated time to recognize & celebrate some phenomenal sisters here in Rochester, NY with our first ever Black Women P.O.P. (People Over Perception) Art series. We constructed a photo art series of over 30 women and released one every day all throughout the month of March.


This year, we decided to go with the theme of “Black Joy”, a feeling that most Black people are criminalized for having on top of all the other traumas & struggles that we face. For Black Women, in particular, their right to be human is often scrutinized in favor of the “strong” archetype which requires them hide their pain, their struggles, their and even their own happiness. At the beginning of the year we held open video shoot for Black Women to come out and be joyous, free, and unapologetically themselves! 


As a collective of mostly brothers, we feel that it is our duty to use our privilege to help provide safe spaces for Black Women to exist in whatever form that may manifest. This project features dark women, light women, big women, small women, tall women, short women, queer women, trans women, women of different professions, women of different religions, women of different different hair style and even the Mayor of our City. 


We are extremely grateful to Danielle Ponder of Danielle Ponder & The Tomorrow People who let use her song “Blow Out The Sun” from her debut EP of the same name as the anthem to our art. In our eyes she is the definition of #BlackGirlMagic as she is a public defender by day & a captivating soul-singer by night. Her powerful performances command the attention of the audience not only as spectators, but as participants of the show. On any & every stage she steps on, she calls the spirit of Nina Simone, Big Mama Thornton, Koko Taylor, and Lauryn Hill to help speak truth to power. 


This project is truly a labor of love. 

A thank you piece to each and every Black woman whose very presence has pushed us to be the best we can be. We can only hope this lets you know that we love you, we support you, and we want nothing more than for you to be free & authentically you!


So on this day, the Earth Day of Mother Betty Shabazz, we say to our sisters, our mothers, aunties, grandmothers, homegirls & every Black Girl in existence…. This one is for you!"

Thank you for your consideration and we look forward to attending the festival again this year!
