Thank you for your interest in the Confessions Of A Melanated Queen documentary series. I just want to share a little information about myself and the direction of this project. I hope you can support us!
My professional background is comprised of 10 years within the higher education setting, including serving as director of a federal-funded program for low-income college students, and an additional five years working within community-based nonprofit programming, girls mentoring, program development, and youth workforce develop.
In 2018, I wrote a book titled Confessions Of A Melanated Queen: Complexities of The Modern Black Woman. The Confessions Of A Melanated Queen brand has evolved to a weekly podcast, and now a company, Melanated Queen Productions, LLC.
This year, we are embarking on a new journey; the documentary series.
The Confessions Of A Melanated Queen documentary series will address chapters of my book through one-on-one interviews with individuals who can provide expert opinions on the subject.
One of the chapters in the book was titled “I May Not Send My Kid to College”. We will lead the series with this episode.
In the book, I presented strategies parents should consider when preparing their children for post-secondary education. My primary argument was that traditional college was not the only option, therefore parents should also consider industrial trades, entrepreneurship, and community colleges as options for their children.
Our goal is to help parents and families make better decisions for so that they may ultimately improve the climate of their communities and subsequent generations.
Thank you for your consideration,
