S2E5: Sparking Honesty and Action Through Film w/ Katrina Miller

Show notes:
Are you willing to risk what is uncomfortable for what is right? This week we’re talking with Katrina Miller, a filmmaker, producer, and owner of Blackat Video Productions, who joins us to talk about her film “This Is [Not] Who We Are” — a documentary that takes a deeper look at the unprogressive reality of being Black in Boulder, Colorado. On this episode, Katrina shares why she is using her passion to advance social activism, the Black experiences that inspired her documentary, and the ways you can take your advocacy from demonstrative to action — even if being open about your truths on social justice issues makes others uneasy.
