Tressie Magazine (ibwff)

ressie Magazine is name after Tressie Souders, the first Black woman to produce, write and direct her own film in 1929. In keeping with the festival’s Tressie Awards, organizer Adrienne Anderson, decided to keep the name for the magazine.

“Tressie Souders as a brand will only raise awareness about her contributions and her history,” said Ms. Anderson. “Imagine how many people will seek out Ms. Souders’ story after seeing her name associated with the first film festival devoted exclusively toward combating negative stereotypes against Black women in film, television and media?”

Tressie Magazine promises insightful articles about your favorite Black actresses, including a refreshingly contemporary look at style, music and the film industry –especially in regards to women of color.
