Hey Hooligan! (that’s our squad name, btw.)

I’m so excited that you’ve decided to join our community of unabashedly creative, ambitiously funny, creators, fans and friends! Whether you’re here from The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl days or joined the journey during Insecure, we’re glad you are here! #HOORAE

My web series, ABG, was a huge success because of this community. I will always and forever be grateful to those who contributed to, watched and shared our series. And because of you, we are proud to give writers, directors and producers of color an opportunity to have their work seen by thousands of people through our showcase, #ShortFilmSundays. We hope to help educate the next wave of creators with our “Build the Table” series, and inspire you to get started where you are with what you have!

Because of you, we've been able to connect hundreds of creators and supporters with movers and shakers of color who are making strides in the entertainment industry with our “Find Your People” party and “A Sip” events. Past guests have included Barry Jenkins, Kenya Barris, Lena Waithe and Ava DuVernay.

HOORAE is a celebration of us. In that spirit, your membership will give you access to highlights, industry insights, surprise giveaways, and exclusive live experiences. From all access looks inside the world of our upcoming film and television series, to Raedio’s world of music and events, to connecting with some of the industry’s best and brightest emerging talent through ColorCreative’s networking programs.

It’s great to be a Hooligan. Thanks for deciding to be a part of our community.
