about & mission

Black Women Directors is a digital platform dedicated to highlighting and celebrating the work of Black women and nonbinary filmmakers. It started out as a Tumblr blog in the spring of 2015, created by Danielle A. Scruggs.  The mission of Black Women Directors is to increase the visibility of Black cis & trans women, and nonbinary folks in film by indexing their work, fostering online conversations, and hosting screenings. Danielle has worked as a photographer, photo editor, and multimedia producer for more than 10 years at various media organizations, including ESPN, the Washington Post and Chicago Reader.
