Ayoka Chenzira

Ayoka ("Ayo") Chenzira (born 1953) is an independent African-American producer, director, animator, writer, and experimental film and transmedia storyteller. She is the first African American woman animator and one of a handful of black experimental filmmakers working since the late 1970s.[1] She has earned international acclaim for her experimental, documentary, animation, and cross-genre productions. Her work, as well as her efforts as one of the first African American woman film educator, have led some in the press to describe her as a media activist for social justice and challenging representations of African American stereotypes in the mainstream media.
