Animation house Black Women Animate (BWA) will team with Cartoon Network Studios to launch the first ever Black in Animation Awards Show. The virtual ceremony seeks to celebrate Black people who have paved the way and continue to do so in the animation industry.
“Three years into our start up, we are continually dismayed at the lack of knowledge people have about Black legends in animation,” reflected BWA Studios Founder and CEO Taylor K. Shaw and Founding and Managing Partner JLove Calderón. “Prior to this show, there was no place to really honor and acknowledge the incredible role that Black folx have had in the animation industry. Keeping to our motto: if you don’t see it, create it! Thus, the first ever Black in Animation Award Show was established.”
