The Problem

Brown Girls Do Ballet, a philanthropic organization often featured for its noteworthy Instagram movement, wanted to produce their 2018 calendar shoot with a new angle. These dancers go through so much in their careers due to discrimination based on the color of their skin. These experiences have made them push harder to become the amazing dancers they are.

THE SOLUTION

We found that interviewing these young women to gain insight to their lives would brew into an amazing product. The culmination of talent, passion, and perseverance led to the film We Assemblé. This film was the driving factor of their social media efforts to raise funds and awareness.
