Jeneé Osterheldt wrote an amazing piece contextualizing the film into our current racial atmosphere, one still rife with black face parties and ignorance. Give it a read.

Colorlines did a great profile of the project and my intersectional approach for acceptance and self-identity. I'm very excited to be included in their coverage!

Thank you to BK Reader for the article and video interview! Read and watch it here: Carrie Hawks’ Award-Winning Short Film ‘black enuf*’ is a Quest for Acceptance and Identity

I was interviewed on KCUR's Central Standard show hosted by Gina Kaufmann. We spoke for about 45 minutes about race, acceptance, and who gets to decide if you're black enuf (Spoiler alert: my blackness isn't subject to your approval). Folks called in and shared their stories.

Listen to the podcast here.


Philadelphia Gay News wrote a nice piece highlighting the different queer films at the 2017 BlackStar Film Festival. I'm in good company with the web series 195 Lewis
