Acclaimed Caribbean-American filmmaker, Sofiya Ballin is the creator of Black History Untold; an identity series that shares untold Black history through powerful and personal interviews. Featuring diverse perspectives from across the diaspora, it's a carefully written love letter to Black people everywhere. Sofiya spent her early career years in a Philadelphian newsroom covering arts and culture before making the bold move to become an independent creative. Since then, Black History Untold has grown into an award-winning multimedia series.
Inspired by her heritage, fueled by passion, and guided by intention, Sofiya has become a testament to the power of Black media makers taking control of their narratives.
