Throughout February, we're excited to spotlight Black creators we admire through a weekly series of video interviews.

Get ready to hear their tales, learn about their journeys, and be inspired by the joys and successes of these bold, independent, and innovative artists, entrepreneurs, and makers. These creators have used Kickstarter to bring their big, ambitious ideas to life, and we're honored to share their stories with you.

First up, filmmaker, producer, and comic maker Amina Sutton talks about agency, being seen, and doing nothing as a form of self care. Learn more about Amina at her website and stay up to date on her upcoming short comedy film, Beach Floaty Thingys, which she successfully funded on Kickstarter.

For more, visit our site, where you can also find interviews with Black creators from The Creative Independent, as well as live Kickstarter projects by Black creators to pledge to and support.
