A message from the show’s creator, Phillip Alexander Downie
I had the most amazing tribe of Black women raise me, from my mother and sisters to my grandmother and aunts! Growing up I never saw anyone like them on TV who weren’t an overly-exaggerated caricature version of Black women.
BGMS is dedicated to all of the amazing Black women in my life who raised me, who inspire me, who are the backbone of our society, and who constantly uplift our communities, asking for nothing in return! I love you, Black women!
