I'm thrilled to be joined by Felicia Pride (@feliciapride) today! She is an author turned award-winning filmmaker and TV writer who has written for shows like Queen Sugar and Grey's Anatomy. She's also won accolades for directing tender, a short film, and producing Really Love, which debuted on Netflix as a Top 10 movie. Felicia moved to Los Angeles when she was 35 to pursue a screenwriting career, and the rest is history. We talk about how she tells stories that center Black women, what it really means to "make it" in Hollywood, and how she maintains her love of writing. Connect with her below:
