Amplifying Marginalized Voices Through Visual Storytelling: Chloe Owens

Chloe Owens joins Melissa on the mic for our Everyday Woman series. Chloe is a non-fiction visual storyteller based in St. Louis, MO. Chloe merges her film, photography, and graphic design skills with her background in social work to amplify marginalized voices through visual storytelling. In 2015, Chloe produced her first documentary The Black Experience at Saint Louis University to amplify the voices of black students and faculty attending a predominately white school. After the murder of George Floyd in May 2020, Chloe created #TheWindowQuoteProject to feature quotes expressed by black people and to express her own feelings during the midst of a very dark year.Please be sure to subscribe to Mimosa Sisterhood on Apple Podcasts and leave us a 5-star rating and review.
