Ruby L. Taylor, M.S.W. Founder & Producer
Ruby is a teacher, social worker, motivational speaker, and author, with degrees from Howard University and Virginia Union University.
In 2012, Ruby suffered a traumatic brain injury that forced her to retire from social work. She pressed the reset button on her life, and emerged with a commitment to remix the message of love and pain as a full-time documentarian.
In Ruby’s first documentary, Mad Believer (2009), she explored questions of faith in the aftermath of her brother’s murder. That film was screened at the African American Museum in Philadelphia and accepted into the following film festivals: Cape Fear, Lancaster Area, and the Urban Philadelphia Film Festival.
Ruby is also the author of two books, including Confidence to Greatness for Teenage Girls and No More Good-Byes: What The Bible Says About Winning In Grief.
Now Ruby is on a mission to empower black girls and women to embrace their beauty, and celebrate just how smart, beautiful, talented, and amazing we are.
She is focused on:
- Practicing Self-Care
- Creating A Circle of Support (Black Sister Friends)
- Pushing Past Uncomfortable Feelings
- Being Intentional
