ShakaJamal

Director ∙ Cinematographer ∙ Educator

My work reveals the inspiring achievements of change makers—whose stories often go untold.

I work with non-profits and corporations dedicated to transforming the social fabric of our community.

Through my own work, and through curation, education, and guidance, I create settings that showcase the inspiring voices of those that are not often heard.
