About this Event

The year-long virtual speaker series spotlighting guests with deep connections to Baltimore. These conversations give voice to personal accounts of successful Baltimore natives, and how their successes are rooted in their lived Baltimore experiences. Our next installment will take place on Thursday, June 24, 2021, at 7:30 p.m., and our speaker will be writer/director Felicia Pride.

Baltimore native Felicia Pride is a writer and an award-winning filmmaker. She was a writer on Ava DuVernay’s “Queen Sugar” for two seasons and is currently a writer on ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy.” She developed a drama pilot, a book adaptation, with NBCUniversal and sold a pilot to 20th Century FOX. She sold the erotic romance Deeper to Universal Pictures and is the co-writer and executive producer of the 2020 feature film Really Love, starring Kofi Siriboe alongside Naturi Naughton and Emmy-winner Uzo Aduba, produced by Charles D. King’s MACRO. More recently, Felicia is known for her directorial debut, tender. In 2020, tender screened at over 20+ film festivals including Reel Sistas, ABFF, Urbanworld, Frameline44, and the Seattle Black Film Festival where Pride won Best Director and won a Lionsgate / STARZ award at the BlackStar Film Festival.

Pride began her writing career as an entertainment journalist, contributing stories to VIBE, The Root, The Baltimore Sun and others. After graduating from Emerson College with her master’s degree in writing, literature and publishing, she worked in New York’s book publishing scene, pre-Kindle era, before carving out a niche for herself advocating for and covering the literary world from an African-American perspective. Soon after, she landed her own blog on AOL Black Voices, became a regular contributor to Publishers Weekly, and a columnist for The Root.
