Has this been a long month for anyone else? We’ve been doing a lot of behind-the-scenes work and battling some illnesses, so we appreciate your patience and support.  

We also can’t stop thinking about #theslap – so many layers.

BOFG doesn’t condone violence or misogynoir, so we feel like everyone lost that night.

Writing Your Story, led by Vera Brunner-Sung, was so much fun! She guided us through prompts that sparked some pretty solid film ideas. We can’t wait to have more activities like this. 


This past Saturday, April 2nd, at 7:00p Zeinabu irene Davis was at the Wexner Center for the Arts.

Zeinabu introduced and discussed her groundbreaking film, A Powerful Thang. Produced in Ohio 30 years ago, it’s one of the most intimate and romantic depictions of Black love on film. They also screened her landmark short film Cycles, an experimental piece that seeks to develop a cinematic language unique to African American women.

Stay up-to-date with us because Zeinabu is going to some powerful thangs in the coming year.

We’d love for you to join us for GROOVE U’s 7th annual Women In Creative Media panel. Our founder, Sydnee Roberts-Crews, will be sitting on the panel to discuss women/femmes in the film industry. Tickets are free but limited.

Thank You!
