Representing the Underrepresented
Avery Kelley, the founder and CEO of Inspired Melanin, LLC is creating what she doesn't see.
Inspired Melanin Inc., founded in 2019, is a production company-curated with the goal of creating positive stories highlighting underrepresented communities. After being founded by Avery Kelley, an at the time 11-year-old writer who saw a lack of people who looked like her on the screen, she decided to form a company that would work to fill in that gap for the new generation in television. Ever since, the now 14-year-old screenwriter, director, filmmaker, and creator has curated multiple scripted and non-scripted projects and concepts that are showcasing positive black voices, that we plan to get on major platforms to reach everyone.
Message from Avery Kelley: "Many writers start small, growing their work into award-winning films. This is the dream I have for my work. Although young in age, I know I can have BIG dreams. And with commitment and dedication, those dreams can turn into a reality. I am committed, I am dedicated, I plan on making history!!!"
