Harvard Law School grad and entertainment lawyer, Raye Mitchell, has partnered with Olympic Gold Medalist and former WNBA player Cindy Brown, to launch a Black women-owned media company.
According to Blacknews.com, Bossology 53 Entertainment’s goal is to create television, film, and publishing content focused on racial and LGBTQ+ equity, and social justice.
“This is a first-of-its-kind collaboration embracing our interpretation of the principles of Olympic values, including excellence, respect, dignity, and mental health,” Brown stated. “We share a vision to help fellow humans embrace their dignity, humanity, and the will to be well,” added Mitchell.
In November 2020, Brown gained national media attention upon releasing videos she claimed were an unlawful eviction of her home in an unannounced S.W.A.T.-like raid. She lost nearly $2.5 million and her home to mortgage fraud and identity theft–becoming homeless. However, she recently filed a $53 million lawsuit alleging race, gender, LGBTQ discrimination, mortgage fraud, and identity theft.
“I am lucky to be alive…I then met Raye Mitchell, and she began to help me make sense of what had happened and help tell my story and be heard in court. Things changed for the better, which led to filing a housing and civil rights violations lawsuit alleging housing discrimination due to race, gender, and LGBTQ bias in the mortgage serving process, which is the basis of one of our documentary projects.” Brown stated.
The merger comes from an authentic lens of two Black women creating avenues of storytelling to bring life to issues affecting marginalized people.
“We’ve teamed up before to enable our fans, friends, and supporters to enjoy the fruits of our experiences, and now we launch this new hyper-brand and platform that accelerates and scales our content production potential,” Mitchell said.
