As We Rise

Creative Director


Ancestry came to One X Studios with the desire to connect the 100th anniversary of the passing of the 19th amendment to the women of color who were part of the movement, but did not benefit from the amendment.


One X Studios was uniquely positioned to tell the complex story of the role black women played in women’s suffrage. We enlisted three women of different generations to tell the stories of the ancestors they knew, and in the process, we introduced them to some that they didn’t.

My favorite part: Being able to give our talent more than just a talent fee, to provide them with new information about the women in their lineage.
