Filmmaker/creative, RaShaunda Brooks uses visual art to create modern day narratives of Black and Brown people. She fosters connection by sharing different perspectives with a broad audience. Brooks believes that well rounded stories of Black and Brown people help to empower those communities by giving them the space to write their own history.
Being in Portland Brooks has been able to connect with different familiar communities. If it be work with Y.G.B. Portland, music management with Brown Calculus or working with Open Signal Labs: Black Film Fellowship, it all provides Brooks with room to hold stories of people who don't always get represented.
