Meet our grantee:

Color Creative

Co-founded by actor/writer/producer Issa Rae and producer Deniese Davis, Color Creative is working to raise awareness for emerging women and minority writers, and provide a springboard for their careers by producing and selling their work to digital, network and cable platforms.


Over the next two years, Rae and Davis will build on Color Creative’s program strategy to expand their pipeline initiatives and formalize the company as an industry-leading pipeline solution for content creators of color.

We are focused on changing the narrative of underrepresentation both on-screen and behind the scenes. ¬ These funds will allow us to develop and oversee even more new and innovative pipeline initiatives and events to help lead this change. – Deniese Davis, Color Creative
