Show Notes

Welcome to Politics & Prose. Gail Dudley sat down with Ayanda Magagula, the founder of Black Female Filmmakers. They jumped in and had a fun, engaging, uplifting conversation. Nothing was off-limits during this dialogue. Of course, Gail talked politics. She said, “We see over and over again the snubs of Black screenwriters, actors, and actresses when it comes to away nights. What do you believe are the politics behind such snubs, and how do you see Black Female Filmmakers addressing these politics?” Tune in to hear Ayanda answer.


Ayanda held nothing back. If you are considering filmmaking, screenwriting, producer, etc., you want to tune into this podcast. Have a listening party with liked-minded people and let’s get moving.

2. Being a gatekeeper
