National Tour Announced for 'Invisible Women' (Doc On Race-related Issues Affecting Black Women in the Corporate World)


With the premiere of “Hidden Figures” (a film that highlights the ignored history of the immense contributions black women made to the Space Race of the 1960s) just a couple of months away, Head Not The Tail Productions (HNTT Productions) is releasing the timely documentary, “Invisible Women: Being Black in Corporate America,” which uncovers and addresses issues around racism that profoundly affect black women in the corporate workplace.

In the film, women share their trials and tribulations as professionals trying to earn a living and compete against mostly white women (and women of other groups) who are also working to climb the corporate ladder.

“For the production of ‘Invisible Women,’ we interviewed black women of varied professional levels who generously shared their previously untold stories and feelings around race-related issues on the job,” said Melody Shere’a, HNTT Productions founder and CEO. “In conducting the research, we found the corporate practice of discrimination to be a common harsh reality faced by countless women of color. We also interviewed experts who provide employment reports and statistical data on this topic.”

The filmmakers hope the documentary will inform, enlighten and surprise you on issues professional black women too frequently face as they work to explore similar career growth opportunities that their white and other female counterparts enjoy.

After a very successful October 12th premiere screening of the documentary, a second screening, followed by a reception and discussion, has been set for Nov. 11th at 7:00 p.m, at Holy Names University in Oakland, CA. See the above poster for details (click to enlarge).

Announced this week, following the Nov. 11th screening,  “Invisible Women” will commence its national tour in late January, headed for Washington, D.C., New York, Atlanta, Orlando, and Los Angeles. Screening dates will be announced later.
