Based on the African Proverb "Until the lion learns to speak, the tale will always glorify the hunter." Lion Speaks was founded in 2018 to educate and empower underserved racial groups in the media production industries by telling stories created by people of color while educating creators of color through mentoring, training, and job placement.
By focusing on the production of media, Lion Speaks works to lift up the stories of underrepresented racial groups in the Pacific Northwest to address the many impacts of racism, including its effect on political, emotional, economic, cultural, and social life.
Lion Speaks uses curated and compelling stories as educational opportunities. Our projects provide mentoring and paid training for aspiring people of color in the various crafts of film and television production. By empowering the next generation of storytellers, Lion Speaks creates new paths of opportunity for those who are too often neglected in mainstream media.
