Damani Baker - Mini Docs by Blindfold

In his film "House on Coco Road" (watch on Netflix), Director Damani Baker takes viewers on the journey his family embarked on to flee racial tensions in the United States, only to find themselves in the middle of the Grenada Revolution. What sets this story apart is Damani’s inherent advocacy for black women and women in power throughout the film, featuring first-hand accounts from #AngelaDavis, #FaniaDavis, and #FannieHaughton.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
As a child, Baker witnessed a utopian culture in which women of African descent were in positions of power. These memories have forever influenced how he views the world and creates his films. ⁣⁣

This Blindfold Mini-Doc was Directed/Produced by Jacqueline Romano, www.jacquelineromano.com

A Fearless Force: Jacqueline Romano on Sharing Your Story

From the heart of blindfoldmag.com creator and Editor-in-Chief, Jacqueline Romano:

For the longest time, I was afraid to use my voice to speak my truth. All of the “what-ifs” left me stunted in fear of being seen, or heard. Last year, I got an intuitive nudge to share with a trusted friend a trauma I had kept to myself for four years. This friend held my hand through my first time reporting one of my abusers. Although no punitive action was taken as result of the report, the act of reporting this person started the—or maybe one of the—biggest shifts of my life. In this time, I realized that the life I thought I was fated to live out was actually a life I could take into my own hands and that I was capable of co-creating how I wanted it to unfold. Throughout this past year, with lots of inner strength and courage—and therapists, healers and coaches—I faced some of my biggest fears, took responsibility for living with integrity and intention and had a tremendous amount of personal and spiritual growth. This video is documentation of me facing more than one of my lifelong fears: using my voice to speak my truth. I’ll always remember this as one of my bravest accomplishments.

The documentary I’m directing with Producer Alezandra Russell is four years in the making, and we are now crowdfunding to take it to completion and use it as a tool to make measurable change. If you would take a few minutes to head to the comments below for the link contribute to our Indiegogo campaign, I would be very grateful. I’m often asked why I am moved to create work like The Often Forgotten, and blindfoldmag.com and I think the message in this speech answers that.

I am forever grateful to my public speaking coach Eduardo Placer and Debra Driscoll of Fearless Communicators who encouraged me to keep pushing through my fear, and to the women who stood strong with me and gave me loving eyes of reassurance while I shared my story. And of course, Jaci of Connections with Jaci for helping to remove my shell and always guiding me to trust myself.

ODIE NOLA is a company, brand, and organization committed to exposing historical untruths, starting conversations, and making statements relevant to marginalized communities and the unique experiences they face daily. Its founder Chloe Dewberry coins “untruths” as personal experiences, comparing them to the narratives widely taught in schools.

What We Stand For

When you remove the blindfold of the worlds greatest injustices, what you reveal is the truth. We’ve built a socially conscious online platform where we showcase the real stories of the activists, advocates and educators who are exposing global injustices by standing up for what’s right.

These individuals are aware that we are all interconnected and that they can use their talents, voice, actions or knowledge as tools to contribute positivity and progression in whatever realm of social good that they are called to. Blindfold inspires our community to create their own path of social good, giving them guidance through these stories and provided resources. We are fueled by thought leaders. We are run by thought leaders. Together, we amplify social good.

Blindfold Magazine converted to an online video and written storytelling platform in Summer 2016, after three years of being in print and sold as a magazine in Whole Foods, Barnes & Noble and Sprouts Markets. We unite interests in different fields while showing that there is no specific way a socially conscious person looks, sounds, or acts, they simply are those who contribute to the betterment of our world. Through video, pictures, and words, Blindfold looks to inspire our readers to “see beyond.”
