Why Cultural Literacy?
As a child of Haitian immigrant parents, Owner/Senior Producer, Tatiana Bacchus' American experience has been full of rich and diverse cultural experiences, even when it didn't seem that way.
Her inherent curiosity about the Black American experience left her feeling like an outsider looking in. As an actress turned producer, Tatiana saw an opportunity to tell stories that would fill in the "cultural literacy" gap that has become commonplace in the American "salad bowl."
