Our Story

Black Women In Media, a subsidiary organization of BLACK STREET, INC., was created to provide a platform for women in media and entertainment. Black women are dominating fields in Communications, Journalism, Entertainment, Television, Radio, and yet there continues to be a lack of representation. BWIM provides a platform to recognize those who have paved the way, empower those who are dominating their fields, and inspire future media mavens. BWIM aims to encourage women to break past barriers and prejudices and continue spreading their Black Girl Magic! To better serve the community, BWIM is launching a mentorship opportunity, launch a series of digital talk shows, and continue their annual awards ceremony and conference.

Is the BLACK WOMEN IN MEDIA AWARDS & CONFERENCE still happening? There is no address. Where is it being held? If its no longer being held when should we expect our refund?
I’m the Assistant Director of the Verizon PSA called ‘Conversations With Mom,’ which dropped on Mother’s Day 2018. We brought together working mothers and adult children who sat down for a conversation they haven't had before about the challenges their moms faced navigating the workplace as a woman. This is the MOST REWARDING PROJECT that I have ever worked on because we had an all women crew, lead by the amazing Director Tracey Baker-Simmons, and it also reinforced why I choose to never accept a production credit that doesn’t advance my career. So I figured I’d share the PSA with y’all again because it’s always a good time to #CallMom for advice. #IKeepsTheCameraHot!! 🎥 #ContentCreator!! #ClapForThat!! #BehindTheCamera!! #PoliticalCommentator!! #PopCultureEpert!! #SubjectMatterExpert!! #LittleBlackGirlFromNewarkNJ!! #ImUpInTheseStreets!! #ImBeingHidden!! #ProfessorLisaDurden!! #LisaDurdenWinfrey!! #IKeepsTheMicDropped!! 🎤 #IGetPaidToTalk!! 💰 #AboutThatLisaDurdenLife!! #AboutThatOprahWinfreyTylerPerryLife!! #InFrontOfTheCamera!!
Mo'Nique is faaaar from delusional! So are Black folks supposed to believe that Netflix is inclusive, but yet, there is not one Black person in a decision-making position at the top of the organization with a key to the executive bathroom!! Below, READ my full essay in Our Time Press on why #MoNique more than deserved the same million dollar paycheck as #AmySchumer, #ChrisRock, #DaveChappell. #OMGIsItOnlyMe?? #LisaDurdenWinfrey!! #ClapForThat!! 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 #IKeepsTheCameraHot!! 🎥 #PopCultureExpert!! #PoliticalCommentator!! #IGetPaidToTalk!! 💰 #ProfessorLisaDurden #IKeepsTheMicDropped!! 🎤 #ContentCreator!! #ImUpInTheseStreets!! #AboutThatLisaDurdenLife!! #AboutThatOprahWinfreyTylerPerryLife!! #InFrontOfTheCamera!! #BehindTheCamera!! #LittleBlackGirlFromNewarkNJ!! #ImBeingHidden!!
WOW! "The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) filed a lawsuit yesterday in the Superior Court of New Jersey against Essex County College in Newark, NJ, for ignoring multiple open records requests in violation of state law. FIRE requested information after adjunct #ProfessorLisaDurden was fired following an appearance on a Fox News segment in which she defended Black Lives Matter." Hmmm, I think 2018 is gonna be a very interesting year for Essex County College. #OMGIsItOnlyMe?? #ReinstateProfessorLisaDurden!! #IKeepsTheCameraHot!! #PopCultureExpert!! #PoliticalCommentator!! #LisaDurdenWinfrey!! #IKeepsTheMicDropped!! 🎤 #IGetPaidToTalk!! 💰 #ImUpInTheseStreets!! #AboutThatLisaDurdenLife!! #AboutThatOprahWinfreyTylerPerryLife!! #InFrontOfTheCamera!! #BehindTheCamera!! #ContentCreator!! #LittleBlackGirlFromNewarkNJ!! #ImBeingHidden!!
I'm proud to be an #APlusContributor on Chasing News with Bill Spadea. TONIGHT we talk about legalizing ma*****na, a stolen dog, and my #ParkingWhileBlack, "towing" incident, where the racist Newark, NJ Police officer tried to make me pay B&C towing for #ServicesNotRendered, was put on blast!! Watch us TONIGHT in NY/NJ @ 11:00pm - 11:30pm on My9; the Rebroadcast in NY/NJ @1:00am - 1:30am on FOX 5 / Fox5NY.com; and in Philly @ 12:30am - 1:00am on FOX 29.

Today, December 15th is #NationalWearYourPearlsDay but I'd like to Honor Black Women Who Wear Their Pearls Everyday! #BlackPearlGirlMagic! Feel Free to Share!
Just wanted to say that I am so proud of all of the Black women in the media today. I remember the days when there few if any Black women in the media. That the image of Black women in the media and in Hollywood in particular has improved so much. Our women are now being shown for the beautiful, articulate,intelligent and well dressed women that we knew that they always were but were hardly ever depicted in that light in the media. My mother was a school teacher. She was a small beautiful Black woman, who always impressive, when she appeared in public.So as a child growing up in America in the 1950's and 60's I was always somewhat disappointed that that image of the Black woman in America was hardly ever shown in the media and especially in the tv programs at that time. Special shout out to my favorite heroine Sandra Bookman, who has endorsed the Nubian Conservatory of Music. And to Sade Baderinwa, who we all want to get well soon. Merry Christmas and Happy holidays to all.
