datejie is the Co-Chair of DigBlk Studios. In early 2017, she interviewed CCP co-founders and organizers for her radio series #organizingstories and was hooked. As a scholar, journalist, communications specialist and organizer, datejie interprets the Colored Convention Movement’s legacy (CCM) as an enduring model for borderless diasporic organizing, disciplined self-governance, Black-loving and human centred pedagogy, knowledge transfer and legacy planning through news production and movement publishing. Since 2018 datejie has been an ongoing director of Douglass Day live broadcasts, and facilitating interviews and the crowd-sourced transcription of primary documents from 19th and 20th century African diasporic activist public intellectuals. In 2019 datejie co-created the short film, "Frederick Douglass, 'Why Hold a Colored Convention?'" with members of the CCP community, extending the spirit of the CCM and Douglass from the print archive to 21st century screen culture. datejie’s work centers solidarity conscious relationships as liberation praxis, connecting the global histories and futures of African peoples, our lives, stories and contributions.
