This episode highlights Rae Shaw, the director and screenwriter of the upcoming web series Black Kung Fu Chick.
Set in South Los Angeles, the web series is about a young African American girl (played by up-and-coming actress Taylor Polidore), who needs guidance with achieving her goal of becoming a doctor. One of her teacher's (played by Chinese actor Peter Boon Koh) gives her the boost she needs to reach her dreams both professionally and personally.
The series premiered at last year’s Slamdance Film Festival and recently played at AfroComicCon (https://afrocomiccon.org/) on October 23 and 24, 2021. The latter is a convention featuring Black and other People of Color creatives showcasing comics, art, music, film, cosplay, and more.
