Raised by 3 people in 5 months

create, inc. provides opportunities to artists of color, primarily of African American decent, to strengthen their artistic voice, allows audiences of color to witness their stories lifted into art by their community and enlightens others by cultivating insight and understanding of specific racial, ethnic and socioeconomic groups.

Our new scripted web series, Harlem Humans, is an episodic journey exploring the relationships of a group of New Yorkers who are unknowingly connected.

Deeply impacted by our childhood experiences, upbringing and  socio economic background, the journey through adult relationships can be both difficult  and enlightening. Why do we treat our most intimate loved ones a certain way and why do we accept certain treatment from them? This project seeks to explore those questions. To excavate the answers we use the mirror of self introspection. Finding a way into who we are as individuals leads to growth and subsequently a larger and stronger community. The story focuses on the lives of a group of unknowingly connected New Yorkers. It is a fictional account utilizing elements of comedy and drama through interview and docu-style filmmaking. 

The art by and for the African American community can often be limiting. This piece examines three dimensional human beings and shines a light on a group that is often misrepresented, contorted and or appropriated.
