HEAR OUR VOICES
Black Voices in Gaming is a non-profit organization co-founded by The Media Indie Exchange Co-Founder Justin Woodward as well as Gameheads Advisor, Alfonso Hooker, that highlights Black developers and studios owned by Black creators in the games industry. Black Voices in Gaming started out as an event during The MIX-produced showcase, Guerrilla Collective during the summer of 2020 when MIX co-founder Justin Woodward was feeling very frustrated with the industry's response on supporting Black developers during the social unrest after the tragedies of Brionna Taylor and George Floyd. Raw Fury Co-founder, David Martinez reached out to Justin for support and they came up with the idea to amplify the voices of Black developers, by allowing them to tell their stories. IGN, Twitch, and Gamespot provided amplification support, and Raw Fury and Kickstarter provided financial support to make it happen. After nearly 2 years Black Voices in Gaming is a non-profit organization aimed at helping developers succeed and have their voices heard.
