"Inspired by the African Proverb "Until the lion learns to speak, the tale will always glorify the hunter," Lion Speaks was founded in 2019 with a dedicated mission to empower Black communities, as well as the wider BIPOC community, within the media production industries We achieve this by amplifying the voices of storytellers from diverse backgrounds while providing mentoring, training, and job opportunities to creators of color.
Our focus is on media production, where we strive to elevate the narratives of underrepresented communities in the Pacific Northwest, addressing the multifaceted impacts of racism on political, emotional, economic, cultural, and social aspects of life in the region.
At Lion Speaks, we leverage curated and impactful stories as powerful educational tools. Our projects offer mentorship and paid training to emerging talents in the realms of film and television production. By nurturing the next generation of storytellers, Lion Speaks paves the way for individuals who have often been marginalized in mainstream media.
