“the Unwritten Rules” Web Series
When I wrote the book, ”40 Hours and Unwritten Rule: The Diary of a Nigger, Negro, Colored, Black, African-American Woman” in 2003, I wanted to create a voice that had been silenced, judged, and disregarded. And eight years later, that voice was resurrected with “the Unwritten Rules”.
“the Unwritten Rules” is a web series based on the book, “40 Hours and Unwritten Rule” (Butterfly Ink Publishing, 2004). The series follows a Black woman’s, Racey Jones, journey in a predominantly white workplace with real situations, truthful thoughts, and honest reactions. With Season 1, the voice was heard globally (ie. US, the UK, Australia, South Africa, the Caribbean) and embraced by Black & White and Young & Old. And for Season 2, we want to speak louder! But we can’t do it without your help.
“the Unwritten Rules” stars Aasha Davis (‘Pariah’, ‘South of Nowhere’, ‘Friday Night Lights’), Balbinka, Sara Finely, David Lowe, Kayla Ibarra, Ebenzer Quaye, and Antonio Ramirez. The series is Written and Executive Produced by me (Kim Williams). I have 16 years experience in Television and Film Production working as an Associate Producer/Post Supervisor. I’ve also written two novels (butterflyinkpublishing.com), as well as, Co-written and Produced the theatrical play, “Bitch” (bitchtheplay.com). Aasha Davis and Michelle Clay also serve as Producers on the series.
The web series has received an overflow of positive response and has been featured on The Grio.com’s 6 Web Series to Watch List, Sister 2 Sister’s 9 Web Series to Watch List , clutchmagazine.com, TheUrban Daily.com, Womanist Musings Blog, Aol.com, and many more.

Have you helped a Black filmmaker’s voice get heard?
Well she needs $22000.
Support Black film and media.
The way we, as parents, speak to our children becomes their inner voice.
This is some heavy shit I always try to remember because I don’t want my voice be the same voice used on me.
I just did a thing with a boy and now I feel weird like I’ve reached the Point of No Return :|
